Listen To Your Mother...


Listen to your mother :

When she tells you The secret ingredient in your favorite meal.

Taking a shower and putting on a 'touch' of blush will make you feel better when you're sick.

Eat something for breakfast...it's true, you do concentrate better.

There is a good reason for separating your laundry so you don't ruin your favorite shirt.

An $80 sweatshirt is simply not worth the money, no matter how popular it is (neither are $100 jeans for that matter).  And when she says, "clothes are clothes."  She's right.

There is a burden and responsibility you take on when you get behind the wheel...don't take it lightly.



If you clean your room in the morning then you'll have all day to do something fun.

You may not catch a cold if you go outside with wet hair, but you will freeze your butt off.

She means it when she tells you that you are her favorite child...even though you know she's telling the others the same thing...you are her favorite for a different reason.

When she says she believes in you...it matters.

When she comforts you while you cry on her shoulder and she tells you, "Those girls probably weren't your true friends to begin with." She's right.

And when she tells you, "That boy just isn't the one God has for you." She's right...again.

When she tells you that you are always beautiful to her.

When she says, "You can tell me anything." 

It's true when she says to take the time to make a good decision...a decision made in haste doesn't usually end well.

Be a leader...not a follower.

*Five Generations of first-born daughters...or... Five Generations of mother/daughter battles*

Don't wish to be an adult so soon...enjoy your childhood.

Observe what your date is ordering off the menu, then order something either comparative in price or less...never order something more.

Your relationship with the Lord should take first place in your life.

Vegetables really are important, especially the green ones.

You do have more energy when you get a good night's sleep.

You get respect when you give it.

Dressing modestly does matter...and is still 'cool'.

Don't get mad when she doesn't give you what you want...her reasons are good...just listen.

Read your Bible...it was written for you.

Spend more time with God than being distracted by things that don't matter.

When she tells you that being a mom is the hardest job she's ever had, but has brought her more joy than anything else.

When she tells you you're a great mother and she's so proud of the woman you've become...


Happy Mother's Day mama!  I really was listening.
