Lessons from my mother…

To honor her on the anniversary of her death (12/12/98), here are some of the many lessons I learned from my mother.

Stop picking your nose.

‘Pretty is as pretty does.’  Your looks are not nearly as important as your mind, your heart, or your soul.

Stuffed cows make good listeners. They dry tears well too.

Never let a seven-year-old have three Dr. Peppers in a row, especially on a long car ride.


Never try to break up a cat fight, literally or otherwise.

Pierce Brosnan is gorgeous.  Who cares if he’s old enough to be your dad?

Shoving everything under your bed does not count as cleaning your room. Ditto the closet.

Things have a way of working themselves out.

Don’t throw the cat in the pool. Don’t let her lick ice cream off of your lips either.

If you color your hair, you will never get it back the same way it was before.

Never play dumb to get a guy. If he can’t take you being smarter than him, he’s not worth your time.

Dogs are good judges of character.  If the dog bites your boyfriend, take the hint.

Some of the best relationships start off as friendships.

Don’t let your four-year-old eat cat food.

There is no problem that can’t be fixed by a trip to your favorite Chinese restaurant and Wal-Mart.

I have a pretty big family and several friends and in-laws that might as well be family. I don't have kids, but I have five cats who think they're kids. I have a silly (and sometimes off-color) sense of humor. I'm a Christian so I'll try not to be nasty or use bad language in my posts, but I'm not making any promises, View all posts by theprozacqueen
