All of us have little things that our mother's used to say (or still say) that have stuck in in minds over the years. One Mother's Day, my mom gave me a little book called "Momilies, As My Mother Used to Say...", by Michele Slung. I'm going to share a few of my favorites with you today.
Nothing worthwhile happens after midnight.
If somebody else's mother lets him jump off the Empire State Building, would you want me to let you do it, too?
Be careful what you wish for; you might get it.
If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.
So it's raining? You're not sugar -- you won't melt.
Why do you think I have gray hair?
Always put toilet paper on the seat.
Don't go into dark alleys.
Don't cross your eyes of they will freeze that way.
Don't wear good underwear to the doctor or your bill will be higher.
Don't put beans up your nose.
Horses sweat, men perspire, ladies glow.
Put on clean underwear in the morning in case you're in an accident.
The important thing is to get a good bra.
Let me feel your forehead.
If it didn't taste bad, it wouldn't be medicine.
It's not what you wear; it's who your are.
Get your hair out of your eyes.
It will never heal if you pick at it.
And my personal favorites: Only sluts wear half slips and nice girls don't wear ankle bracelets!
Pat yourself on the back today for doing one of the hardest jobs on Earth: being a mom. Whether it's to your own children, step-children, grandchildren, etc., it is the hardest and the most rewarding. I declare that you all are "Queen for a Day" today and every other day too! M.
