Life Lessons From My Mother

Never underestimate yourself.  You can do far more than you ever imagined if you put your mind to it.  
 2 pairs of nice jeans are better than 5 pairs of cheap ones. 
Vacuuming the floor makes the whole house look cleaner.
Take your shoes off before you enter the house.  Unless you're a guest...then you get to keep your shoes on.
Dogs talk.  They hear what you say and, if you listen closely, they will respond. 
Pretty is as pretty does. 
Never underestimate the power of your words.  
Bedtime stories make all the difference.
Thanksgiving should be a time for family and food and togetherness. All holidays, really. 
Speaking of is not just for holidays. 
Love the Lord with all your heart, mind, and soul.  Lift those hands up, sister, no one is watching you anyway. 
Be grateful. Enough said. 
Moms make great friends. Seriously, I call her twice a day.
Don't scream, "I hate you!" in a fight. You don't really, and you can never take it back. 
Don't lie. You will always get caught.
When the one your meant to be with comes along, your mama knows. 
Moms are always usually right. And they like to hear you say it.
A mother's love is unconditional. 

Who can find a virtuous woman? She is far more precious than jewels...
Strength and honor are her clothing, and she can laugh at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and loving instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the activities of her household and is never idle. Her sons rise up and call her blessed. Her husband also praises her: Many woman are capable, but you surpass them all! Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord will be praised. 
Proverbs 31:10, 25-30

Happy Mother's Day, Mom!
