Well, your mom seems like a very wise person. Makes me wish a had better role models in my family. On the other hand, we can learn valuable things from every person, even the ones who seem quite ordinary.

Eduard - My mom is definitely a wise woman and I've been very lucky to have such a great role model as a mother. However, I completely agree with your point about how we can learn valuable things from every person we meet. In order to do so, we have to pay attention and keep an eye out for lessons.

Your mom sounds like a really amazing woman :)

Your mom seems pretty awesome. I have learned a great deal from my father and my stepmother.

My favorite is #54 Think highly of yourself. This is something I need to remind myself often - it's so important, but so difficult.

I'm fortunate that I also have a wise mother. I didn't really appreciate that until I was in my 30's.
