In February 2006, I read an article in a magazine (I think the magazine was called Real or something like that), that I would never forget.
The title was something like (forgive me, I have THE WORST MEMORY of anyone I know), Bits of Wisdom From 10 Women Over the Age of 100. Basically, it was 10 little pieces of advice from these 100+ year old women – what they had learned throughout their lives. Literally 100 “momisms.”
As a side note here, once you hit 40, you pretty much make up your own words, and somehow everyone knows what you’re talking about. For example, when you want to charge your battery, you “batterize” it. See what I’m saying?
Sorry for the sidetrack (a true ADD mind at work…)
I only remembered three pieces of advice out of the 100:
- Don’t worry about your weight.
- Marry a man who loves you more than you love him.
And My Favorite….
- If it’s not terminal, don’t worry about it. And if it is, there ain’t anything you can do about it.
Little did I know that two months later my mom would announce she had lung cancer.
Read number three above.
