February 10, 2017 Things My Parents Told Me That Are True
- "There are more things in heaven and earth, Connie, than are dreamt of in your philosophy."
Granted, it's a quote from Hamlet, but my beloved Daddy-o was the first person I heard recite it. It was his go-to when telling us to keep an open mind.
- "Things don't come easy to us, we have to work hard for everything we have. So, find something you're good at and like doing. Then, when you do get something nice, you know you earned it."
My Dad teaching us work ethic.
- "Quit gossiping! When you're standing at the pearly gates, no one is going to judge you for what someone else did!"
My Momma, and she was absolutely correct.
- "As long as both have passed the age of consent, no one is being forced to do anything they don't want to do, and you're not a participant, it's none of your business who loves who!
Again, my sweet Momma.
Both parents. Whenever they would sing a song to us, sing along with the radio or television, every song ended with "cha-cha-cha!" Honestly, when you think about it, that really does make any song better...
