What is the most striking, memorable thing (good or bad) you ever heard your Mom or Dad say when you were a child?
, "I love you" and "I'm proud of you."
"1st time & last time, right?" After I'd been arrested for donuts in my VW in front of HS after game while on learner's permit.
Spring Hill, TN
when after my father had gotten angry at me w/o cause he realized the error of his way and came and apologized to me. Huge lesson.
my dad told me that lipstick was made from horse poop when I was about 5. Still don't wear it to this day!! ;)
"Son, I'm not afraid of death" -Dad. Taught me what perseverance looks like.
"If I've told u once, I've told u a thousand times . . . Iron that pocket poof before you put it in your jacket."
. Mine is: "It's so good to be home." (from my mother)
My most memorable quote was "you know what your problem is? You think I won't kill you." It kept me from many rebellious acts.
. Steve says, "Put your wants in one hand, and your messes in another, and see which one fills up faster."
. Caleb, as of yet, has no comment.
Cary, North Carolina
my dad said "It takes a lifetime to develop your reputation and less than 5 minutes to destroy it."
"don't be an idiot." just kidding. they told me to follow jesus and it changed my life
. Grandma Johnson always said, "God has an all-seeing eye and an all-hearing ear."
my dad told me "I don't care if you grow up to be a street sweeper so long as you love Jesus."
: from my dad: "no matter where you are, what you have done, or what trouble you are in, you can call on me and I will come get you"
My Dad said to me and my brother who were still at home, "If it wasn't for you kids, I would be remarried by now"
dad said it to me after taking me outside to a hot van with the door shut and no A/C. It was like a Turkish prison.
Good story, but it would have been funnier if it had been Tanya, right?
When I asked for a toy tommy gun like the kid's across the street, my WWII vet Dad said soberly, "That will come soon enough."
