Only a man who treats his mama well is a good man in a Southern Belle’s book. And good men are hard to find.
Sometimes the best medicine is love from Mama.
Right now, I am very very ill. I contracted a severe case of mono (don’t drink after your friends!) and I have felt miserable for four days. I had to go to the hospital early one morning, pack up and drive to my hometown to see another doctor, had blood work done twice, and all I wanted to do was curl up at my parents’ house and watch some good ole HGTV. The only thing that has managed to make me feel better was my mother’s absolute attention and affection towards me today. I love you, mama! And wish me well, Belles and Beaus! It’s gonna be a long three weeks…
It is just as much work to stay at home and raise your children as it is to work a full time job.
Parenting doesn’t stop at a child’s 18th birthday. Parenting is a life-long job, even after children have grown and gone out into the world.
Family doesn’t always refer to the a-typical father, mother, and their 2.5 kids. Family refers to those we can say that we love without limits or conditions.
If a man doesn’t love his mama, he isn’t worth lovin’.
If mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.
(An anonymous person asked me, “What is the best southern saying you have heard/use?” I think this one answers that question.)
Your parents were once as wild as you…even if they don’t seem like it now.
Face this fact: your mama will always be able to fold laundry, make sandwiches, and tuck you in better than anyone else. That is, until you have your own children.
At the end of each day, we should be thankful for the small moments we have with our families.
Happy Thanksgiving from your favorite Southern Belle!
