Out of the Mouths of Moms

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms. Your words of wisdom will carry your children throughout their lives and beyond through generations. We thought we would ask our readers to share with you some of the wisdom their mother’s shared with them.

“You can’t live your life by other people’s standards, you must do what is right for you…if you want to be happy.”
Mrs. Alvin Johnson, mother of Carolyn Alexander
“The secret of life is JOY
Jesus first, Others second, Yourself last–JOY“.
Mrs. Edith Kelley, mother of Nancy Amos
“You can be whatever you desire to be/do if you put God first, be committed and never give up”.
Meshelle Stewart’s mom, Betty Hill
“The word dumb doesnt exist. Do the best you can with what you have to do it with”.
Mamie Coby Abdul-Raheem’s mom, Emma Coby
“Treat people the way you want to be treated”.
Mrs. Irma Rose White, mother of Pamela Berry
“(You) being present is important”.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY, REMEMBER YOU ARE SPECIAL–“thisisyourbestyear”.

Welcome to This is Your Best Year!!!

Welcome to thisisyourbestyear”!  You and I are on this journey together.  Together and collectively, we will give suggestions on living life to the fullest.  This is a blog for women who thought that when they reached this age, life was over.  This is for all of those women who thought their mothers were old at this age–well they may have been, but that’s not the case anymore.

Maricia-City2

We will discuss everything from health, beauty, faith, life, children, grandchildren, exercise, careers, retirement, starting all over again in love and/or career. We will talk about learning the word no, taking time to be who we are.  With this blog we will have fun, we will talk fashion, food, travel and all kinds of products–in other words, we’re going to talk about us.

You can always email us at  thisisyourbestyear@gmail.com and see all the things we are doing by visiting us at thisisyourbestyear on these social media sites–Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr and YouTube.  We are also on Twitter at: thisisyourbestyear@mariciajohns.

Let’s get excited ladies, and stay tuned.  Remember–“THIS IS YOUR BEST YEAR”!
