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.

Never be the first one to end a hug.

There is no such thing as an ordinary hug.  Hugs are always outstanding, especially the ones where there is a little bit of rocking involved.

Don’t get sucked into things that are on sale.  Look at the price it is , not what it was.  Are you happy to pay that?  Don’t get caught up on what you are saving, be aware of what you are spending.

Know your parents’ friends’ mobile numbers.  They care about you and your parents so if you can’t call us, then call them.  They will get out of bed and make certain you are safe.  They may even help you break the news to your parents.

Never carry anyone else’s luggage through customs, even if they are your best friend in the whole world.

 Your father** will always love you.  Always.  **Your father may not be the man that actually fathered you.

Fruit cut up on a platter by someone other than yourself will always be more appealing.

There is never a valid reason for someone to hit you or make you feel worthless. There is never a valid reason for you to hit someone or make them feel worthless.
