Mom and Tag - Olivia Newport

Almost a year ago I started a Friday feature called “Mama Says.” Every week I shared something my mother has said that caused me to laugh, reflect, act. It’s been fun to hear that people looked forward to what Mama had to say each week.

“Mama Says” as a weekly feature has come to an end. From now on it will be an occasional feature when she says something outrageous.

Here are some of my favorites.

Bad hair day?

Just a bad day?

Feeling broke?

Feeling impatient?

Choose one and enjoy a reprise! Or click here to see the whole year in review.

And give God thanks for the woman who gave you birth, the woman who raised you, or a woman who loved you when she didn’t have to.
