Did you receive any advice or words of wisdom from your mother or another female ancestor?

I really thought hard on this one… but couldn’t think of anything in particular that my mother or grandmother said to me that left a deep lasting impression; nothing profound. It wasn’t in their words but in their deeds.

I do remember silly things like: “Life is like a ice-cream cone… once you think you have it licked… it will drip all over you” and “the hand that rocks the cradle… rules the world.” It took me years to figure that one out. I only wish more mothers taught their children, that someday, the decisions they make will effect other peoples lives.

The best thing about the future is that it only comes one day at a time. ~ Abraham Lincoln
