Keep every promise you make and only make promises you can keep. (Anthony Hitt)
Awnty Ellen fwum 15 and meowin’ tagged us fur da Quote Challenge da udder day. Da rules awe to name and link back to yous challenger. Post at least 3 of yous favowite quotes, and pass da challenge along. So here we go.
Our openin’ quote is one dat be very close to mommy’s heart, as all of our quotes will be. Mommy sez a purromise has a much stwonger connotation than words like, okay, I will, sure, no purroblem. A purromise is yous word and bond. Afur mommy’s accident when she was healffy and always reliable, she made lots of purromises. And she kept every one. Today mommy makes far less purromises, but she still keeps each and every one. Ifin mommy sez she purromises you sumfin’, then yous can count on her to do it. We fink it’s weally purrtant dat yous mouff not be writin’ checks yous body can’t cash. Dat by da way is not on our quote list, but it is a quote made famous by Bo Diddly. And one dat mommy uses when she dusn’t make purromises. She sez hers mind is still sharp as a tack but hers body keeps her fwum duin’ a lot of fings these days.
Our next quote is weally relevant today when so many awe twyin’ to erase periods and events of history. Sed by George Santayana, “Those who cannot remember the past, are condemmed to repeat it.” Good, bad or ugly da past exists and we can’t change it. But we shuld learn fwum it. Yous own past has made you da purrson you awe today. Events have led you to where you awe today. Even tho’ we be poor and mommys body be a mess, she sez she wuldn’t change a fing. Everyday of her life has been a learning adventure dat has led her to da here and now. She sez she be gwatefull dat it’s hers short term memory dat be da purroblem cuz she has da memories of da lessons of her past to guide her.
Our third and final quote was a toss up. We saved da bestest fur last. So many peeps hav quoted this one in a variety of different ways dat no two sites cwedit da same purrson over and over. So weez’ll just say dat mommy’s gwandpa (may he rest in peace) taught her to “Live each day to da fullest, cuz you were never promised a tomorrow.” We fink it’s purretty self explanatory. And Jesus said in Matthew 24:36, “But of that day and hour knows no man, no, not the Angels of Heaven, but My Father only.” We kuld go on and on and on, but you kinda get a sense of who we awe in da qotes weez chose to use. Fanks fur da challenge awnty Ellen.
