Humor Me... Things My Mother Taught Me

Humor Me...
"A cheerful heart is good medicine..." ~Proverbs 17:22

Yes... Mother's Day has past. But you never seem to forget the things your mother told you. They stay with you for a long time. Have you noticed?

This is a poem my pastor read to us on Mother's Day. Just for a laugh. I thought they were pretty funny. Not sure if it's because I've heard them before... or said them myself. Must be one of those reasons. You may find some of these sayings a little familiar yourself. :)
