My mom has always had great advice. But as a daughter, it is my job to not listen to said advice, make mistakes she warned me against, and then write this post to let the world know that she was in fact . . . well, right.

1) Always look your best, or at least decent, when you are in public. You never know who you might meet/run into.

2) Never get in the car without a bra and clean underoos.

3) Don't back talk me.

4) Dust once a week.

5) Separate your reds, always.

6) Keep enough money in savings that if you have to leave you can.

7) Pray about your problems.

8) Pick your friends carefully.

I am sure there are more. But these are the ones I remember (and learned from).

hey there little sis...what about:
9)always keep money with you (hidden in your purse),"mad money" is what she use to call it.

10)"pretty is, as pretty does", did you ever get that one.

11)Even if you don't feel good, you should get up & get dressed for the day, it will make you feel better.

Many of those are things my family pumped into my brain and are really great advice! I hadnt' thought about them in so long...

I wonder if there's a mum handbook, where they all learn to give the same advice.

Always look your best in public is a guideline of my life....unless i'm going to class, then I just dont care.

My mama said
You can't hurry love
No, you'll just have to wait
She said love don't come easy
But it's a game of give and take
