My Mom stressed Kindness and Tolerance. She taught me to be a giving person.

I liked all the other posts! emoticon

I'm not sure. I will have to do more thinking about this.

The best advice I received from the women in my life: Treat others as you would like to be treated.

I don't have any kids.

Keep smiling!!

Not so much advice, but the example she set. Born during WWI, she was the exception in her generation - a professional woman who rose to the top of her field while still raising three children, cooking for all family gatherings, scout leader, and active in her church. The implicit message was YOU CAN DO IT IF YOU WANT IT AND ARE WILLING TO WORK FOR IT!

DH and I have a blended family (second marriage for both of us) with 3 daughters, 8 grands, and 1 great-grand. I'm with IVYLASS in stressing reading - for every gift-giving occasion, kids and grands have always received 3 gifts: an item of clothing (body); toy or game (spirit); and a book (mind). All have grown up with a love of reading/learning and view reading as the key to the imagination (or as the youngest says, "the magic nation").

No children , thus no grandchildren .

So much advice from my maternal grandmother, mom, & aunt.

The one thought that runs through all of them is to be compassionate to all - poor or rich, well or sick, kind or unkind, regardless of what they believe, do or say.

Two adult children, no grand kids yet (thank heavens. My kids are not ready.)

The best thing my mother ever did for me was teach me how to read before I started kindergarten. I have a passion for reading that I have passed along to my children. If your children love to read, they will never be bored.

One stumble does not a failure make.

Everything in moderation.

Wow, a multitude of things come to mind that my mom has taught me, but this one stands out in my mind the most:

Jesus first
Others second
Yourself last - that's the key to real JOY!!

My husband & I have one daughter, Angela, she's 27, and two grandchildren, Mikaela, 2 1/2, and Kaedan, 1 (you can see their pics on my sparkpage!)
