  3. Manifest YOUR reality by the direct Intensity of the desire of your Heart. The sky isnt the limit- there is no Limit~!

    thats my advice to newborns and oldborns too. :)

  4. I think asking why would serve a child well. Don't believe what someone says unless you know why they say it. What are their motives? Where would you be without this person's advice?

  5. Sonny -- Heavy stuff! You certainly see no limits in your life as you always go for that bras ring.

    Tabor -- Isn't it funny how we work so hard to keep our children from constantly asking "why"? We do our best to break them of the habit because it drives us crazy.

  8. Whitemist -- I once heard a visiting bishop say that if an infant could exist alone after birth on a desert island it would have an inherent believe in an almighty Creator. It is only as the child grows under the influence of others that it begins to doubt.

  9. Although religious thoughts and grand reflections of the merits of moral living went through my mind, I must go with "Never fry bacon in the nude."

  11. Cliff -- Maybe not earth shattering advice but important nevertheless.

  13. Always tell the truth if you can.

    Telling the truth will serve you well all of your life. If you tell the truth you never have to kill yourself remembering what you have said to someone. You only have to remember what actually happened, and that's hard enough.

  14. Bonnie (BIZ) -- It is easy to tell that you a a mom to dogs:) LOL

    Chatty Crone -- Nice answer. It's good to see you comment here.

    Nancy -- That's my husband's motto too. I try to behave in such a manner but sometimes my imagination runs wild and I have to embellish a bit. (I had another bout of shots for trigger finger!) (Loved your Gussie story on the Elder Storytelling Place.)

  15. Be respectful to everyone, ie. treat everyone the way you'd like to be treated.

  16. So hard! Count your blessings, but don't settle.

  17. To listen to the song "I hope you dance" by Lee Ann Womack. All of my advice is everything she says in that song.

  18. Glad to know that Ron agrees with me.

    I'm surprized that your trigger finger returned and you had to get another shot. I know it hurt and I'm sorry you had to do that.

    Let's hope this is the last time.

    Thanks for your nice comment about the story at the Elder Storytelling Place. I wish more of your readers would visit there and read the stories. I think they would like that site and maybe they have stories to tell themselves. Everyone who writes there is an amateur writer so everyone fits in.

  19. If you don't want something done to you, don't do it to someone else...
    The rule I do my best to live by.

  20. Lynn -- "Do unto others....." If only we all treated each other the way we want to be treated!

    Riot Kitty -- Counting blessings is such good advice. Much better than lingering over unhappy events.

    qandlequeen -- You are so right! A song packed with good advice:
    "I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
    Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
    Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance
    And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

    I hope you dance"

    Nancy -- You are so right about the Elder Storytelling Place. I have published a couple of stories there too. I'm thinking maybe that's how you and I met??

    Snaggle Tooth -- You are in good company with Lynn giving virtually the same advice straight from the Golden Rule. Probably the best advice ever given.

  26. Pat - I regret all my rebellion from my mother's words. Lots of things would have been different if only I had listened and taken her advice.

    Marla and Steve -- I certainly told that to my children when they were newborns and still tell them that today.

    Changes in the wind -- What a wonderful world this would be if people believed they were loved from day one on this planet.

    Bonnie -- Wisdom to offer a newborn for sure.

    G.B.Miller -- So many people fail to stand by their beliefs and only pay lip service without actually showing support for those beliefs.

  27. I think the Bard said it best, although he did put it in the mouth of that self-righteous prig Polonius: To thine own self be true.
