So it’s Mother’s Day tomorrow, and I absolutely believe I have the best mother in the whole world. She’s everything I’ve always needed at every stage of my life. She’s strong and determined, loyal, kind, understanding, sassy, the list goes on..

So the other day I dug out my old highschool yearbook and looked up the little note she had submitted for me in the back for my senior ad, which contains some of the finest advice she’s ever given me. And in honor of Mother’s Day, I thought I’d share it with you. Enjoy!

“Dear Anna,

Woot–you’re a senior! It seems like just yesterday you were my little, pumpkin-headed baby girl, and now you are a beautiful young lady getting ready to ‘have an adventure’ and go out into the big, wide world and take it on. The least I can do, as your loving mother, is give you some advice to safeguard you and guide you once you are there. Take these tidbits to heart, and remember how much you are loved and you won’t go wrong.

Call your mother; always keep a globe in your heart in case you get lost; never fry bacon naked; never underestimate the stupidity of another person; don’t smoke; wear a bra; call your mother; don’t put metal in the microwave; don’t cut your own bangs; don’t kiss a vampire; call your mother; always think outside the box; constant vigilance; keep both hands on the bat-rope; call your mother; your day–your attitude–your choice; always say ‘I love you’; laugh often and pray more; call your mother; remember the best things in life aren’t things; play nice; trust yourself; don’t look behind you; call your mother; true love does not come by finding the perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly; tie your shoes; call your mother; celebrate the little things; you shouldn’t always say everything you think; rules are NOT more like guidelines; truth can be diplomatic; and lastly–CALL YOUR MOTHER.

Love, Mom”
