Mama Used to Say: Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life: A Legacy of Words Worth Preserving from One Generation to Another by Joyce Digby Nelson, Ed.D.
Excerpts from Page 55:
If You Are Grown,
Get Out and Get on Your Own
If you didn’t want to follow Mama’s rules, then it was time to
move. Get your own house, buy your own food and clothes too.
Don’t Put the Cart Before the Horse
Do things with decency and in order. Mama would sometimes
add, “You have to crawl before you walk.”
