Life lessons my Mother taught me

 

What did your mum teach you? Jacqui has written down some of the things she learnt from her mother in a comical recount …

 

1. My mother taught me to APPRECIATE A JOB WELL DONE.
“If you’re going to kill each other, do it outside. I just finished cleaning.”

 

2. My mother taught me RELIGION.
“You better pray that this will come out of the carpet.”

 

3. My mother taught me about TIME TRAVEL.
“If you don’t straighten up, I’m going to knock you into the middle of next week!”

 

4. My mother taught me LOGIC.
“Because I said so, that’s why.”

 

5. My mother taught me MORE LOGIC.
“If you fall out of that swing and break your neck, you’re not going to the store with me.”

 

6. My mother taught me FORESIGHT.
“Make sure you wear clean underwear, in case you’re in an accident.”

 

7. My mother taught me IRONY.
“Keep crying, and I’ll give you something to cry about.”

 

8. My mother taught me about the science of OSMOSIS.
“Shut your mouth and eat your supper.”

 

9. My mother taught me about CONTORTIONISM.
“Will you look at that dirt on the back of your neck!”

 

10. My mother taught me about STAMINA.
“You’ll sit there until all that soup is all gone.”

 

11. My mother taught me about WEATHER.
“This room of yours looks as if a tornado went through it.”

 

12. My mother taught me about HYPOCRISY.
“If I told you once, I’ve told you a million times. Don’t exaggerate!”

 

13. My mother taught me the CIRCLE OF LIFE.
“I brought you into this world, and I can take you out.”

 

What did your mum teach you? Did she have sayings that have stuck with you throughout your life?

Jacqui Lee is 75 and now retired but the last ten years or so have been some of her busiest. She worked at a hospital, where she took several Certificated courses, she cleaned a school, helped to run two conventions, wrote short stories, started painting, and in fact is never bored even now, "I honestly feel we are lucky to still be upright and breathing, and my motto is, Remember yesterday, dream of tomorrow, but live today. I love fun, clothes, food and friends."

 

Couldn't agree more!! - Ann
