A Song for Mother's Day

What I Learned From Mom: On the eve (kinda) of Mother's Day, Abq Jew reflects on the Life Lessons he learned from his mother, Roselyn Yellin, of blessed memory.


Religion
You better pray that this will come out of the carpet.

Logic
Because I said so, that's why.

Foresight
Make sure you wear clean underwear, in case you get into an accident.

Justice
One day you'll have kids, and I hope they'll turn out just like you.


Here's another Mother's Day lesson, which Abq Jew learned from Matron Mama Morton (Dana Elaine Owens of Newark, New Jersey, aka Queen Latifah) in the film Chicago:



And perhaps the most important lesson of all, especially as Abq Jew gets older. This one is from 88 year old Great Grand Mama Sheila Kronrot, may she live to 121 (she shouldn't go suddenly at 120)!


Shabbat Shalom, Albuquerque!
Good Shabbos, New Mexico!
