Today is Mother’s Day.
Yesterday was my momma’s birthday, which was another one of the year’s milestones in the family. In honor of her, and this wonderful day dedicated to mommas everywhere, here’s another list.
13 Things I've Learned From My Momma Over the Years (in no particular order): -- How to sing harmony. -- Flour need not be measured precisely. -- A weed is anything growing where you don't want it to be. -- "Just ignore him, Elizabeth." -- Always wipe the counters. -- Wash the dishes as you go. -- Sometimes it's hard to trust people... -- ...but forgiveness is always the best option. -- Hospitals throw away a lot of perfectly useful things. -- It is okay to take a nap. -- Always send someone else your travel itinerary and emergency contact number. -- Fresh herbs make a big difference.
And last, but certainly not least,
-- Call your mom on Saturdays.
Happy Birthday, Momma!
