My mom has been gone for almost three years now and she is sorely missed. She always had an amusing way of getting her points across with a little smile to get her point across; there have been so many tidbits of advice, but a couple that come to mind right now are:
~It's a poor fool that stumbles over the same rock twice ( I was very young when I heard that one and didn't know the real meaning then but I surely do now!), and
~If you can't pay cash for it, you don't need it.

Moms best advice "get a crooked lawyer on your side". And use the alleys to get around Parsons avenue traffic.
And if you are carrying a military secret take it to the grave.( After she died I discovered my Air Force Mom really had raised me from the womb as a Navy orphan). Whatever advice she gave my Army drill sergeants when she chewed them out on the phone I can only wonder but they started saluting me after that. She was the Master and Commander.

Our 35 year old daughter passed away a few months ago. This is really a tough weekend for my wife and me. My advice is for Moms and Dads: call your kids every day and hug them every time you see them. You never know.

"Treat others with kindness and respect and you will get those returned to you."

"Be careful what you say and do to others, for it will return to you threefold."

"Respect your elders for they have the knowledge and wisdom you have yet to achieve."

Debbie Ouellette, 52

There are so many great quotes here. Thank God for mother's who teach kid's values such as kindness and integrity.

My mother taught me so much, mostly by her example...One of the greatest lessons was this- always be kind to the elderly because one day you are going to be old too.

Almost every weekend when I was a teenager I can remember spending Sat. mornings going to the homes of those who were sick and elderly in our community and helping clean their house, fix their lunch, do yardwork, etc...and never ever taking any money for it.

My mom passed away when I was 20, but I think she smiled each time she seen me teaching my kids the exact same thing.
