Life lessons from my mother

straighten

My mother has given me lots of advice over the years.  I don’t know if I can verbalize a lot of her wisdom that she passed on, but there are a couple of things that she said that are stuck in my brain.  One being…”straighten up 15 minutes everyday”.  I know it sounds silly but the older I get the more time I realize even doing dishes takes, but when it comes to keeping the house neat, 15 minutes picking everything up makes a big difference!
