THE MOST IMPORTANT WORDS MY MOTHER EVER SAID TO ME
My mother always judged character by posture. I've always said that if Gerald hadn't been ramrod-straight when he walked through the door we would never have had a chance! When I was a young girl I was self-conscious about my developing bosom and I would slump over. My mother would slap me on the back and tell me to straighten up. One day she spoke the words that changed my life: she asked, "Do you want those on your belly when you're thirty?" I immediately straightened up and I've been strutting around like this ever since!
