I know Mother's Day was yesterday, but since when have I been on the ball for anything? Especially lately... But I'm not going to let a little lateness keep me from my Mom Appreciation!
My mom once gave me the best piece of advice I've ever received. "Heather," she said, "if you don't like something about yourself, change it. You're the only one who can." It's excellent advice, and I think of it often. But...it's not the easiest thing to do. Fortunately there's almost no limit to attempts at self-improvement.
My mom makes horrible crock pot oatmeal.
But she makes rockin' hot fudge pudding cake.
My mom taught me to sing with abandon, and to be content with what we had.
