I was trying to find a picture to post for today when I found this one. My Mom asked me to take it and give it to my brother quite a while back. I think it's only fitting since while he was visiting her last week he had a cold and was coughing up a storm. As mother's do - she told him to buy some cough drops but he didn't do it for several days and when he finally did he twittered: "I hate it when my mother is right."
I myself have experienced the same phenomenon. My greatest memory of my mother being right was her strong recommendation to take Latin in high school. Of course I didn't take it and it made my biology and literature courses in college that much harder. It probably would have helped with my French as well.
So my advice to all: Listen to your Mother - she is probably right. ;)
To my Mother:
Thank you for all of your love and support. I wouldn't be who I am today without it. I miss you and love you and hope you have a wonderful day.
