My mom's most oft repeated words of advice are:

"You need to get along with everyone."

"If you share, you'll have more friends."

and that old favorite: "Try not to fight!"

When returning home from doing errands, my mom would always take an indirect route to drive down a particular street. One day, I asked her why. She said, "I always go the pretty way" and pointed out a particular house with lovely landscaping. No matter where we went we saw some simple beauty because mom always went the pretty way.

My mother always led through example.  Make your bed every morning, put a dab/spray of perfume between your breasts,  and look into a mirror with a smile. She had 6 children,  2 of whom were severely disabled due to Polio, and persevered.  She never complained and faced each day with courage and grace.

My mom told me that NO One Can Take Care of my Children like i do...not even her. Not that my mom wasnt a good guardian or grandma...she simply meant your children should be your priority trust no one to take care of them like yourself.

I always remembered that.

Always be independent. Never really on anyone but yourself.

In a similar vein to gossip, my maternal grandmother ALWAYS said, 'when you grow up, you will realize that common sense is not all that common.'  How True!

My stepmother told me that learning to cook using fresh ingredients and leaving commercially canned or packaged foods at the grocery store would never fail me. She was right about that.
