Things Mom used to say

As we celebrate Mother's Day I could not help but think of many of the things my Mom used to say to me.

As we celebrate Mother's Day I could not help but think of many of the things my Mom used to say to me. Mom's in their wisdom and love are always trying to do what is best for their children. I am amazed how many things that my Mom said to us as we were growing up that have stuck with me through the years. Some of the following might remind you of your Mom! Happy Mother's Day to all you Moms on your special day.

God bless you and your children,
Father Bill
