Mom’s Advice To Their Famous Sons…Before They Were Famous
One thing that we can always count on from our Mother is advice. Most of the time it's good and it's even better if we follow it. I can't count the times that my mom gave me her insightful wisdom and I ignored it. I would have saved myself a lot of trouble and time if I just listened to her.
As we get ready for Mother's Day this Sunday, let's look back at the motherly advice that was given to their non-yet-famous sons.
Mom's Advice To Their Famous Sons Before Anyone Knew Who They Were
Paul Revere's Mother: I don't care where you think you have to go but you better be home before midnight.
Albert Einstein's Mom: Albert, it's your senior picture. Please do something with your hair. Try some mousse, gel, or put on a hat.
George Washington's Mother: The next time I catch you throwing money across the Potomac, no more money for you. You'll have to find another way to get your quarters and dollars.
Humpty Dumpty's Mom: Humpty, if I've told you once, I've told you thousands of times. DON'T SIT ON TOP OF THAT WALL!!
I'm not famous but my Mom gave me a lot of great advice including: Pray, read your Bible, and trust in God. So what advice did I listen to: Don't date just one woman. What she meant to say was "Don't date just one woman but don't date them all either...Now she tells me.
In all seriousness, being a mom can be hard and to paraphrase that nearly famous saying, "if being a mom was easy then dad's would do it." I love you Mom and THANK YOU for everything that you've done in my life.
I've said this before because it's true: You believed in me when I didn't believe in myself. Sometimes, I wish I could see myself like you can see me.
