I’m grateful to be writing about these nuggets of wisdom from my mom on behalf of Hefty® who is sponsoring today’s blog post and inspiring us to celebrate the strong moms in our lives! Just like Hefty® Ultra Strong™ trash bags, today’s moms are Ultra Strong in everything they do.
Nuggets of Wisdom from my mom linger with me to this day.
As a tween I know I rolled my eyes – behind her back that is.
I know I huffed and puffed.
I know in my heart there were times I said I would never be like my mom.
That is raw and honest…and you too can probably relate.
Fast forward to me now a 35 year old wife and mom…and she’s the wisest most amazing lady I’ve ever known! These nuggets of wisdom she gave me as a tween still apply today…and I cling to them many times in these days that are mixed-up, full of crazy-ness in life! Trying to raise my little one and nurture my marriage- she’s always there for me.
Just a tidbit about my mom: She’s proven the test of time as a wife, mom, sister, aunt and grandmother – being married to my dad for over 40 years, raised three children and now has 9 grandchildren – if that’s not a fine example, I don’t know what is!
Nuggets of Wisdom from my Mom
It won’t matter in 10 years.
My mom had an aunt whom she adored and saw as a great role model in her life. Therefore, this would be my great aunt who I too grew up to adore and look up to…she’s the great aunt that was the sweetest, kindest and most generous soul you’d ever meet – I wish I could have a cup of sweet tea with her on her back porch today and glean wisdom from her. She always said or asked the question “will it matter in ten years?” and the answer holds true in majority of the cases that it won’t. So growing up my mom used this with our family and I still say it and think about this to this day. It really helps me with my perspective on life and day to day trivial matters.
Learn to save, give and spend your money wisely.
Mom knows best, especially when it comes to spending wisely and making smart decisions for her family.
Do unto others as you’d have them do unto you.
If we could keep this golden rule at the forefront of our minds, our families, homes, culture and world would be a better place, no doubt.
Go to bed and when you get up in the morning, everything will be better.
It’s just for a season.
Enjoy this season because it will change as fast as it came!
Motherhood is the most important job you will ever have.
This soon shall pass.
She always encouraged us to love our families because they will be around for a lifetime…she cultivated this within our home, with myself, and with my siblings and today I am forever grateful because they are my best friends.
I’m beyond grateful for my mom, her influence and her love to me and my family to this day. As always Moms Know Best! Thank you mama I love you!
