When you were growing up, did it seem like your mother had millions of rules? She probably had one for just about everything you wanted to do! But these rules were all for one purpose: to teach us how to be the best person we could be. Here are a few different rules your mom might have had.
• Clean up your room! This was really just a rule to teach us to be clean and organized when we owned our own homes.
• Eat your vegetables! One fact of life is that as we get older, our bodies start to break down. Having a balanced diet can help prevent that. Eating vegetables, fruits, and other foods we may not necessarily like but are needed for a healthy diet will help keep the body functioning properly. Mom was just trying to make sure we would live to a ripe old age!
• Don’t watch more than an hour of TV! This was mom’s way of making sure we would go out and play or do something active instead of sitting in front of the TV, computer, or video game all day. It kept us healthy and, hopefully, gave us an appreciation of exercise and being active.
Did your mom have these rules for you? She probably had them and a lot more! But they were all for good reasons. Show your mom how much you appreciate everything she did to keep your healthy and safe by giving her a great Mother’s Day flower bouquet in St. Petersburg, FL, on Mother’s Day.
