One day not too long ago..2 Australian mamas were sitting on a back deck, sipping wine.. and talking up all the oxygen available.. when the conversation turned to life lessons.. and what they thought were the ones that certainly and without doubt needed to be learned. The two teenage daughters of the 2 mamas were, in turn, amazed, amused, and repulsed, by the words of wisdom tumbling forth from the mamas' mouths. These are, in no particular order, those words.

  Always buy your lover a birthday present and Christmas present, no matter how little money you have.

      If someone has the courage to ask you to dance and you don’t want to dance with them, be polite.  DO NOT BELITTLE THEM.   If you do wish to dance with them, do so.

      If your friends make you feel anything less than happy and supported, they are not your friends.

   Friends have the right to tell you when you are not being your best, but they will do so gently and with love.

   You have the right to tell your friends that they are not being their best, but you must do so gently and with love.

   Be happy with who you are, not who you think you should be.

   Never stop growing and evolving.

   Sometimes, life is too hard and too much, this will pass.  Put one foot in front of one another until you get to the other side.

  Always buy a “The big issue”   every month, even if it take the last of the money in your purse/wallet.
