My mom taught me many things. I am truly thankful that she showed me how to be gracious, helpful, polite, tactful, and on time ;O)

It wasn't my mom, it was my grandma. Her and my grandpa have been married for almost 52 years, so I asked her what the secret was.....

She said whoever left had to take the kids :) I don't have any kids yet, but I could see that making you want to stay a little longer lol

My mom taught me that men aren't forever and neither are jobs. You never know what life will throw at you. She taught me that I needed to be smart (book and street) enough to be able to pick myself up, dust myself off and get back on the horse. That I need to be able to take care of me. That I have something to fall back on. My mother and I have had a rocky relationship and there is a lot that I don't agree with or condone. But that bit has always stuck with me and I have always been able to figure something out.
