MAMA ALWAYS SAID

Posted on 12 April 2016

Hello sweet friends! We have a little something special up our sleeves for Mother’s Day this year, but we need your help and participation in order to bring it fully to life!

 

Modern Burlap - Mama Always Said

 

Growing up (and most likely even now) did your mama have a signature phrase, piece of advice, or bit of wisdom that she always seemed to retreat to time and time again? One of my friends mothers has always told her “this too shall pass” whenever she’s facing something difficult or is feeling sad and deflated. It’s a saying that has remained with my friend through years of transition, moves across the country, relationship struggles, career meltdowns and more. And the greatest thing? Whenever my friend starts to feel overwhelmed with whatever the situation may be, she hears her sweet mama in her head saying “this too shall pass.”  

My own mom has always told me to "drink more water." If I'm sick, drink more water. If I'm breaking out, drink more water. It only took me twenty years to realize she's on to something! Water is everything! 

So tell us: What did your mama always say? We'll be turning all of our various mothers wise advice and sayings into something super special this Mother's Day.

We can't wait to read what your mama always said!

XO,
Modern Burlap

    My mom always use to say, and still does… “if we only knew, then we would have known.” Basically, there is not point in being sad about something that has happened. We have no idea how it will turn out in the end!

    Eating a little bit of dirt is good for you.

    This essentially reminds me to let go of trying to control everything and to relax! :)
