Mother’s Words

Filed under: memoir — freethepen @ 2:41 pm

meandmom70s As most mothers, my mother had phrases that she repeated during certain times. One of them was, “Janet, always be prepared.” She put me in Girl Scouts and their motto was, “Be prepared.” I’ve noticed that being prepared has been a theme in my life. It has kept my medicine cabinet complete, my finances in order, my kitchen stocked, and so much more. Being prepared has allowed me to endure many challenges in life. What words has your mother said that helped you throughout life?

Keep the pen moving,
