My Mom gave me the best advice after we got married: don't attempt to change a man. He is what he is. Don't think you have the power to change him just because he is married to you.

All things pass....LOL.

My Mom told me " Your life is a canvas in which everyday you add a new brush stroke. As long as you allow the beautiful colors of those who love you and the things you love to be on you pallet, your life will be a masterpiece."

Girl Friday said...

My mom has a great sense of humor, so she "amended" my grandmother's (her mom's) advice, "You can't eat looks on a plate" to quip, "but it sure helps when the person eating opposite you is a feast for the eyes."

Her more serious advice was simply this: "Be strong; the only person you can rely on is yourself."
