My Mothers Words of Wisdom, Whole Lotta Love, Day 8
Today I want to share some of my Mothers words of wisdom, because in our family we love them. We are never together that one of the kids doesn't say, "well as Non Non (that is what they called her) would say," and we are off. Laughing and sharing.
My Mother was 89 when she died and still lived alone. She lived next door to me and we had an intercom as well as walkie talkies between the 2 houses. Her communication of choice was the walkie talkies.lol She did not like haughtiness in anyone. Two of her favorite quotes for that was. "Never does a bird fly so high it doesn't have to land." Another,"They better watch who they step on, on their way up, because they will meet them again on their way down."
When people gossiped about you, she would say,"Ah, while they are talking about you, they are letting someone else rest." Or if she over heard them talking about someone she would say,"Well she should be pitied not censored."
Some of her words, I am sorry I cannot put on this blog. LOL She was a mess. If someone was quiet, she would say. "Watch out, still water runs deep."
If we were going somewhere and I made a wrong turn, "her remark would be. That's why they put reverse in cars".
When I got married she told me very calmly, "You have made your bed, now you will have to lie in it."
Another was, "Don't throw more out the back door than he can bring in the front."
As she aged one of her favorites was "well I am too near home to mess up now."
So I love the words of wisdom my Mother shared with me all of my life.I hope you got a chuckle and I love you coming Through My Back Door where life is good and there is a Whole Lotta Love.
PS: after I had posted this Debbie called and said you have to add this. If she was skeptical of someone and what they were saying, she would say,"Betty, I am not buying what they are selling." With the emphasis on "buying".
I am going to scan some pictures of her and put them on one day. She was a saint and loved her grands more than anything. BTW, she thought Deb was perfect. (imagine that)lol
