Momma says........

  1. Did your parents or friends have a great pearl of wisdom or saying that you remember to this day? Here's a couple that I remember.

    Momma says- Leave your garden in the fall the way you want to see it in the spring. (advice taken)

    Daddy says- Just as easy to fall in love with a rich man as a poor man. (advice not taken lol)

    Have a great day!

    Got the same advice, but from different dad was a landscaper....and took my dada, but ignored my mom`s....
    My mom always told me never to start a fight, but never to walk away from one.

    I usually follow that. (I try, I really do!)

    To this day mom says "You can't take it with you...may as well enjoy life."

    My answer is "that's o.k. for me, but your spending my inheritance when you live like that!". (There's really nothing to inherit, but when we're spending money, we have to have a way of rationalizing it.)

    I like Nike's wisdom:

    ****Life's hard.****

    works for me.

    Momma said to learn to be independent before you marry so that when you do marry you stay that way because you want to be and not because you feel you have to.

    She also said don't begin anything in a marriage that you don't want to continue for the duration of it. (like back scratching, etc.

    My mama always says, "No one has to live with your conscience but you."

    My mummy always says "Don't be beholden to anyone."

    So true.
