Things That Are Passed On

I don't consider myself to be the smartest person in the world. But, in my defense, I have been around long enough to learn a thing or two which makes  me an expert in certain matters. Here's just a few of the things that my mother used to say to me that I have come to believe. If your mom was anything like mine, then you will probably  be able to identify as well.

1. That you really can't make a silk purse out of a pigs ear. You have to use worms.
2. That if you fall and break your neck.. you really shouldn't come running to me, grab the cell phone and call 911
3. That if you keep crossing your eyes they won't stick, you'll just looks funny for a moment
4. That if I told you once, I told you a thousand times cause I can't remember things now
5. That I do own my own place  and I can jump on the bed, leave the lights on, stay up late and eat junk food, but you can't.. it's my house

6. That I  really may have been born in barn. Not sure they had hospitals back then
7. That what goes around comes around. I raised 3 teenagers
8. That when your father gets home "you're going to get it" means that mom is ready to "take you out of this world" and leaving it to dad
9. That you really were doing it for my own good
10. That you can teach an old dog new ticks, but not a husband
11. That we never did go to bed "RIGHT NOW" until we heard you heading down the hallway
12. That money doesn't grow on trees because birds would crap on it
13. That I was both seen and heard when I was trying so hard not to be
14. That if you had slapped me into tomorrow that would be known as time travel 

15. That  apples don't  fall too far from the tree unless it's a windy day
Well there you have it. My beliefs.....

  1. I just found you and love your writing. My mom used to say the same things. Nice to see a different twist. Lots of laughs.
