Yesterday was my mom’s birthday.
My mom is a tiny woman (she’s probably 5’1″ but her hair adds an extra inch or two), yet her personality is quite big. And she’s beautiful. I won’t tell you her age because doing so would go against her personal beliefs, but I can promise you she looks way younger than she is.
While writing out her birthday card, I got to thinking of some of the lessons she has taught me.
Here are my top ten favorite lessons from my mom:
- Be relentless. If you’re persistent, that “no” may change to a “yes.”
- A true lady always wears lipstick and rouge when leaving the house.
- Watch what you say … you may start believing it.
- You’re only as old as you tell people you are.
- The bigger the hair, the better.
- Stand up straight and take your hands out of your pocket.
- Be different. Let everyone else be the same.
- If you search long enough, you can always find a gem at TJ Maxx or Marshalls.
- Photographers are not magicians. Do your part.
- I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Lesson number ten is the most important lesson from my mom and I’m so grateful for that.
