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 70:
I Brought You in This World,
and I Will Take You Out
When Mama asked you to do something, you had better do it,
with no hesitation. If it wasn’t for her you would not even exist,
and therefore she would not hesitate to lay you out on the floor
if you made her mad enough.
I Am Through With You as Much
as I am With the Dirt Beneath My Shoes
Mama wasted no time with people who appeared to be wasting
her time with foolishness such as pretending to be looking for
a job and they were hanging out over a friends house.
