My Aunt Rita and Grandmother stepped in to help raise me. I am very grateful for their guidance and wisdom.

During this time of year, I like to stop and think about my wonderful mothers and what they taught me during my formative years. It’s hard, but I narrowed these down to the top 3 things.

  1. Honesty and Integrity. My Aunt Rita made sure that I got this one. In fact, this was a very high priority in my family, and this set down the blueprint of how I relate with people today.
  2. Spirituality. One thing that my Grandmother did instill in me during our brief relationship was spirituality. In fact, she often told me that spirits roam for 3 days after death.  This must have intrigued me, since I am a medium today and it’s my service to help others connect with their loved ones on the other side.
  3. Role Model. Both my Aunt Rita and my Grandmother were upstanding role models to me, and it’s because of my Aunt Rita that I am the person that I am today. It’s important that young people have elders that help shape them in a good, positive way.

That’s my 3 things that I think of when I think of my mothers. Tell me what 3 things do YOU think of when you think of your mother?

  1. It will get better before you get married. (Said when hurt)

    You are my sunshine

  2. 1) Never wear holey underwear-in case you get in an accident!
    2) Always send a nice “Thank-You” note back when you’re given a gift.
    3) Be kind to animals.

  3. 1. Trust that God will lead the way through life. Faith conquers all.

    2. Never go to bed angry, the other person may not be here when you wake.

    3. Dream of the future, don’t dwell on the past. Your mistakes are a learning tool.

  4. 1. That she will always be around me in some way. Today (May 3, 2013) would have been my mothers 90th birthday. She transcended Dec. 29, 2010. She especially likes to say hello on this day every year. This year it was through you. I don’t usually read your e-mails. Whoops!! We are never alone.
    2.She gave me the gift &taught me the importance of unconditional love. I pass this on in my recovery homes, to my daughter & grandson and to as many others as humanly possible.
    3.The two things you never want to lose. Faith in your higher power or your sense of humor!!
