Excerpt
My Mother Taught Me This


Never take the easy way out; persevere

Speak the truth,

even when you are the minority.

Show affection, speak of love

Laugh often, laugh at your own mistakes.

My mother taught me this.



Know that nothing happens in life

that you cannot handle.

Understand that to love yourself is a gift to you.

Change is not always easy, but don't avoid it.

Learn more by seeking knowledge
in books and words.

My mother taught me this.



Don't take 'no' for an answer.

Stand up for what you believe.

Be kind to people who you know have troubles.

Have fun in life

and don't wait until tomorrow to have it.

My mother taught me this.


Because I was a witness to my own mother's

great inner strength,

I am a woman of great inner strength.

I've shared this gift with my children,

friends and family.

I am thankful, eternally grateful,

and I will always remember that

My mother taught me this.
