Things My Mother Taught Me

Good morning beautiful humans happy Sunday! Thank you for spending part of your morning with me. Welcome to Life with Lane!


You always hear the phrase mother knows best. When you’re growing up, it doesn’t seem like she does. However, as we get older we realize that the things our mother taught us; she was always right. UGH!!

That can be very bothersome because as preteens and teenagers we think we know everything;  and our parents know nothing. That our mothers know nothing about life and they can’t possibly understand anything that we are going through. At the end of the day, we realized the things that our mother taught us and told us; she was always right. As they say on Game of Thrones,  “You know nothing Jon Snow!”

She wasn’t just right about things that happened to me as a teenager; she also understood things that would happen to me when I got older.  I used to say to myself all the time and even now; how does she know everything? 

As a matter of fact I haven’t seen my ex husband since 2007. On paper it was 8 years because it took almost 2 years for us to finalize our divorce. However, she was right! 

This may sound bad but its true. I got married when I was 20 years old. Before I got married, my mother looked at me and said and I’m not sure she remembersureI give it about 6, 7 years tops.”  I wasn’t really sure how to respond to that so I don’t think I said anything. My marriage lasted exactly 6 years. 

We broke up like two months later. He was literally exactly what she described. I don’t think older men are like that in general; I just think he happen to be that way. He was a very insecure man. I can’t think of many things worse than a insecure person.

One of the best things my Mother ever or should I say to best advice she ever gave me was, “When people tell you something about someone you love. You make sure you hear it from the ones you love mouth before you believe it!”

Sometimes when people tell you things it isn’t always coming from a good place. We live in a sad world and unfortunately most people don’t like to see you happy. That is what my Mother meant by that. As Oprah says, “You can’t be friends with someone who wants your life!” 

At the end of the day my Mother wanted what’s best for me. She wanted me to be careful who I trusted. She wanted me happy and safe! MOTHERS ARE EVERYTHING!!

What are some things your Mother taught you about life? What is the best advice your Mother has ever given you? Do you think Mother’s know best?

  1. Those saying come from somewhere, we just don’t wont to listen to our mom. Later we get that ” I told you look “from her. Hey mom. Release the Kraken! 😄😄😄

  2. I’m glad you have such a great relationship with your mom. My daughters and I are very close too. I personally think that most mother have good intentions but I know sometimes the advice I give to them comes from a place of fear. I want them to be safe, successful etc. and a lot of the advice comes from my perspective. Too be honest I’m most proud when they are courageous and follow their hearts. I told my daughter to stick out the two more years of law school because I thought that was best (and it’s what I would’ve done) but she quit and couldn’t be happier!

    1. I’ve always had a wonderful relationship with my Mother. Maybe because it was just us kids and her! My parents got a divorce before I was in kindergarten. We were all we had. I knew she wanted what was best for me. She wanted me to have more than she did. Be smarter, braver, bolder, more adventurous. But not too adventurous, lol! I don’t always take her advice because she’s my Mother which means she naturally worries and when I say I’m going parasailing or scuba diving she says it’s not a good idea, lol! But when it comes to life things she gives me the best advice 😍😍 she’s yet to steer me wrong

  3. I just love Aunt Pooh she’s my favorite of the bunch and that’s because no matter what she never sugar coats it with you!! She gives it to you uncut and raw and stands by what she says whether it hurts you feelings or not and that’s why I love her so much,because you don’t realize it then but later you think to yourself “HEY,I really needed to hear that!!” She’s a wise woman with a pure heart and am forever thankful for the wisdom she shared with me.People will never have to meet her to realize how beautiful of a person she is because she raised 5 children by herself and did an outstanding job,and the beauty in her shines thru all of you!! The cousins in the family always say That you 5 are so special because all of you guys are multi talented and Incase your bloggers didn’t know,every one of y’all have the singing ability that none of the other cousins have!! THEY GOT PIPES YALL!!🤣 oh and as far as your Auntie Myria,Well we all know Ms.No Filter is always rite🤣 love you cousin,great blog!!😘🥰
