Glitter can make any craft great…or turn it into a hellish nightmare that gets everywhere and will never, ever go away.
This message is brought to you by crafting with my mother! Remember, kids, glitter is the herpes of craft gear. Use only as directed.
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.
My mama can cook a meal, talk to her mother on the phone, clean up after my brother, call my daddy in for dinner, tune into her favorite show, change a load of laundry, feed the dog, and gossip with my sister—-all at the same time. I don’t know any other women in the world that can multi-task the way a Southern Belle can.
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.)
