I just bid my mama farewell after a 10-day visit, and it reminded me of all the things she has taught me….
-Sit up straight. There’s nothing more slovenly-looking than someone slouching. It doesn’t cost a dime, and it will most likely make you feel better.
-Don’t shuffle your feet. You sound lazy and look even worse.
-You can’t unring a bell. Think long and hard before you say something you might regret. You can’t take it back.
-Write thank-you notes.
-Ladies, take the time to look your best.
-If you’re on time, you’re late. Be early.
-When you remove an album from its sleeve, hold it by the edges.
-Tell the people you love how you feel. Every day.
I love you, mom.
