...clean underwear...


Make sure you got clean underwear, she always said,
 in case you get in an accident & I always figured that'd be the least of my worries,
 but now I'm older & I see there's a lot you can't control
 & some you can control & clean underwear is one of those you can.
 For the most part.

my mom just said this.
to my daughter last week.
good advice.
but the moment was.
the laughter that accompanied the advice.
enjoy the moments.
just BE.

Yes, control what you can and don't sweat the other stuff. A good reminder!

Love the quote - so true. And I remember my mom saying that to me!

My mom always said that to me, too. And I always wondered whether anybody actually puts on dirty underwear...

Hmmm...I heard that admonition a lot many years ago. By both parents! Indeed, the condition of my underwear would be the least of my worries in the ER...

I know this too!
Looks like your autumn is turning soon to the next level like here in Helsinki. This morning we had the coldest temp this autumn, -1 C (30.2 °F)but it's sunny - a perfect day for a crisp walk! :)
Have a good week ahead!

Fading colours of a leaf matched with wisdom on clean underwear. Perhaps there connects some symbol. Ponder. Ponder. I like the tension of the ideas. Very creative.

Absolutely absurd advice but the most trueness ONE.

Seems your Mum & my lovely Mum (deceased) think alike. Those great minds, huh?

Lovely shot as ever.

Hugs,
