Listeners Share Their Mama’s Wise Words — Delilah’s Reflections




Most mothers tend to give as much advice to their children as possible, in most times being serious but sometimes humorous.

Here are a few examples of some wise words given by a few mothers to their children:

My mom taught me how to find the good in every situation, and that it’s okay to make mistakes and learn from them. Natalie

Always think things through and make a plan…If I fail to plan, then I plan to fail. Jing

You need your sleep so give it to God and let him worry about it. Juleen

She taught me the secret to being happy is to decide to be happy. It’s all up to me. Michelle

The one that comes to mind immediately is not to judge people. Ever. And one of her favorite sayings: You never know when you might be entertaining angels. Karen

Work hard, don’t lie, and be kind to others! Carter

Always pee before you leave. And take a sweater. Linda

My mother taught me “You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar” and it’s always worked for me. Sarah

My mom taught me to always validate my children’s feelings. That no matter what age 2, 12, 16, 30, their problems and heart aches are just as important to them, no matter how big or small, as our adult problems are to us. Melanie

You’re not any better than anyone else but you’re just as good. Louise

Don’t sweat the small stuff. Victoria

Before she died March 10, 2014 as I was crying she told me, “Life goes on cupcake.” Truest words I ever heard. Melissa
