10 lessons I learned from my mom.

 My mom is pretty incredible. For almost thirty-two years she has been there for me. Through thick and thin, good times and bad. She has been there...and so on this mothers day I wanted to share ten lessons I have learned...

Of course it has only been since I have become a mom myself that I have truly learned the values of such things...

Lesson #1: Never let them see you cry...

Because in the end, those that make you cry don't deserve the time to begin with. Nor are they worth the effort is takes...

Lesson #2: Always have a backup plan...

Because not everyone can be the next Nicholas Sparks, Britney Spears or Resse Weatherspoon...and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches get old after awhile.

Lesson #3:  In the end all you have is each other...

Yes you may fight, you may call each other names. Hate each other from time to time. But in the end, they will be your only link to your past.

Lesson #4: There will always be someone who has something bigger, better and fancier than you. Deal...

Keeping up with the Kardashians/Jones..truly isn't worth it...so  don't try.

Lesson #5: Ten years from now, that boy you had a crush on, will be either, fat, bald divorced or in rehab...

And you will look back and find yourself wondering what you ever saw in him in the first place. Trust me, there is someone better for you.

Lesson #6: You do not need a man to make your life complete.

Though finding the right one always makes it worth while.

Lesson #7:  You are your own worst critic...

In your eyes there will never be anything good enough, never do anything good enough, never be pretty enough. But this is only in your eyes alone...don't let this stop you from finding your own way....

Lesson #8: You can't change what happened in the past. But you can learn from it.

They will only make you stronger in the end....listen, observe and learn....

Lesson #9: Life often is not easy, not fair and hard for most of us...

There is no such thing as a freebie. Nothing is handed to us, it takes work sacrifice and patience to make it...But if you work hard, in the end it will be worth it.

Lesson #10: We may not have had a lot of money, we did not raise you in a mansion, you did not wear name brand clothes or driven the most expensive of cars.  But that did not mean we didn't love you any less...

And sometimes, that's enough.


 To all the moms out there, including my own. Happy Mothers day...the saying is true, the hardest job is often the most rewarding job....and you rock at it.
