When your parents lovingly say “You’ve grown so much,” it means that they are very much amazed and at the same time emotional, that you were once their baby, whose world revolved only around Mama and Dada, and now, a full grown adult, just like them. They probably couldn’t believe that they have raised you this well, but they did. So let them embrace you, touch your face, hold your hand, because after all, you are still their baby, but just all grown up. To all my kids, Mama and Dada love you with all our heart.
Take home shower caps from the hotels you’re staying. It may seem that you may not need them, but you will. Take all the complimentary items as well, it’s what you paid for.
When your washing machine makes too much banging noise during dry spinning, the load it’s trying to spin is too heavy. And apparently your husband won’t take your opinion on that, or your boyfriend. Just wait for the washing machine to break down, then he will believe. Some men are “to see is to believe” kind of people.
When you invest money in a business venture and it has gained profit, keep the profit, and save it. Take the investment money that has returned, and invest it again.
Only spend on maternity clothes for outdoors and special events. When you’re at home, use your husband’s clothes and underwear (if they’re loose enough). You’ll save money that way.
If you are single, or married with no kids yet, then you have no excuse to skip Sunday’s Mass.
When you have a baby, or any children under 5 years old, it’s understandable, especially when mass is scheduled 2 to 3 times only on Sundays. If you live in an area where mass is scheduled every hour, go to church whenever you can.
I believe that God will understand and appreciate the care you are giving to your kids. Parenthood is just too hectic during infancy and toddlerhood.
The customer ISN’T always right. Correct them in the kindest way possible. If you can, compromise if his demands are fitting to his current situation and if it’s within company’s policies. But don’t make an exception, because you’ll have to do it for everyone.
My doctor is the friendliest doctor I’ve ever known. He answers all my questions, and tells me they’re very good questions. He always greets me with a smile. He is strict in his medical care, but treats me as a person, not a mere patient.
If you are doctor, please don’t forget to be kind to everyone you work with. Your team (rather than calling them subordinates) may have studied lesser years and lesser books than you, but you are all professionals, with different roles, different skillset, different levels of knowledge, but all will work harmoniously and effectively if each is kind to everyone. That’s why, you’re called a “team of experts.” Saving lives is a lot more rewarding if one compliment each other’s contribution.
Ask first what is needed, never assume so that your efforts won’t go to waste and you won’t be hurt by rejection. This applies to gift giving, lending a hand or any situation that you put yourself on the line.
