My Mother used to say "dont sweat the small stuff" I thing this id a good bit of advise for me becaus I use to worry a lot when I was a kid I thought everything had to be taken care of right away and if there was a small problem I would just flip out and that just makes matters worse. I'm sure thats not the best advice but what about your mom or dad what advice did they give you that you where able to pass on to your children?

The best advice which my mother ever gave me, perhaps is my mother asking me to always controlling my temperamental and emotional. Actually i'm such temperamental and emotional person. Mostly such habit bring me to a hard situation. That's why my mother always reminding me to control my such bad habit. I know she meant for my good and she wants me to be a good person. Perhaps patient is more useful than anger. But sometimes i felt she is so annoying with all of her advice. But when i felt down, i can realized that her advice is all of true. I think i will trying to remember and remember all of her advice so far anytime so i can always controlling my temperament and emotional whenever i go. My mother wants me good and i should realized this. Good luck and have a nice day. Happy mylotting.

It was nothing she said that I remember, but she was the most generous person I've ever known. If you needed and she had, you had. She spent more free time helping out friends and family when she had nothing else to give. And I am proud to carry on this tradition of her.. ENJOY!

"Keep assets" When she meant assets, it meant something with monetary value and can benefit me in case something happen. She said, a woman shouldn't depend too much on man. Regardless how reliable her husband is, she need a firm support of her own. So keep assets in term of business, house or anything. Mom has three rubber estates and small business that bring income. So when my dad passed away, she already has a strong financial support of her own.
