My mother taught me about menopause....in the weirdest kind of way. I used to think she was a deranged woman for the way she treated me but now I understand it really wasn't my mother at all---her physical and mental state were being controlled by the culprit know as MENOPAUSE.

My mother convinced me she could get me into Heaven:  "You better cut that out before I knock you into Kingdom Come!"

My mother taught me about the circle of life:  "I brought you into this world and I can take you out!"

My mother taught me about the power of prayer:  "You better pray to God that I don't kill you!"

My mother taught me about logic:  "Because I said so, that's why!"

My mother taught me about the weather:  "This room of yours looks like a tornado went through it."

My mother taught me about receiving:  "You're gonna get it when we get home!"

My mother taught me about horseplay:  "If I've told you once...I've told you a thousand times.  So when you get hurt, don't come running to me looking for sympathy!"

My mother taught me about wisdom:  "When you get to be my age, you'll understand."

My mother taught me about justice:  "Why do we need the police?  You have to answer to ME!"

My mother taught me about parenting:  "One day you'll have kids and I hope they turn out just like you!"


On a serious note, my mother did teach me things like respect, self-confidence, a work hard ethic and to stand up for what I believe in. 

Whether I like it sometimes or not, I am who I am because of her influence.  Menopause has a NEW victim.
