Six Things

(I stole this idea from Suburban Rage's Five Things.)

Six Things My Mother Taught Me:

1.  How to cook

2.  How to sew (my livelihood for a while)

3.  How to have a positive attitude

4.  If you're trying to save money, allow yourself to spend just a little; if you try to deny yourself completely, you're liable not to stick with it.  (Hence the little shopping trip today.)

5.  Eat real, good food in moderation.  (That's not a glaring grammatical error.  I mean food that is good and food that is "real", as in not highly processed.)  Someone wrote a whole book about this, but my mom knew it all along.

6.  Sometimes it's OK to break the rules, just a little bit.  (To be read in conjunction with Dad's Rule # 6, Follow The Rules).

Thanks, Mom!  These are the foundation of health, happiness, income, and a cute new jacket.

Love, Christina

I learned the art of volunteering. I need to get a good night sleep now. K
