Sayings of My Mother

My mother had "little sayings" that all mothers have. I know I do!! Suzanne and I were talking about this topic the other day. These are a few tidbits from my mother!

1. You just went to church!! Be nice!!

2. If you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all!

3. What goes around comes around!

4. I'm going to tell your father!

5. We're taking the scenic route! (My mother was famous for getting lost.)

5. Can you carry me? ( She would frequently ask her grandkids to carry her when we were out shopping. My mom was a mega shopping machine!)

6. It sure is dark out there! ( Late one night, my father once asked my mother to enjoy the view out of their upstairs window. My mother thought this was just plain silly. I can just hear her questioning herself as to what could possibly be worth viewing in her tiny Oklahoma town. She just didn't know what to say, so she made this statement. For years after that when a family member was at a loss for words, we would say......It sure is dark out there!)
