Ooooh Kathie Inoue.  She was known for a good line or two. :) 

My mom and I would always signs notes back and forth with the same tagline, "Faster. Higher. Stronger."...and hers is the voice in my head, telling me to do just that...it's kind of annoying at times, I'll be honest. ;)

You give me a topic, and I'm sure I could think of a Kathie-quote.  So, in honor of Mother's Day, here are eleven (of MANY) that still haunt motivate me. ;)

1. Get rid of what you don't want, to make room for what you do.

2. Remember who you represent.

3. Don't ever be too proud to pick up a penny
Sidenote: I've never liked picking up pennies and still rarely do!...sorry, mother dear. ;)

4. We're raising you to be leaders...and leadership is uncomfortable. So get used to being uncomfortable.

5. If you love on people, you will never lack friends. Don't ever be so selfish to think you're the only one lonely...just look in the corners of the room and you'll find plenty of people who would welcome your conversation.

6. You can never out-give God.

7. It's better to spend a little more on classic and a little less on trendy.

8. Ask questions

9. There are friends who are there for a season...and then there are friends who you'll grow old with...invest in the latter.

10. The best cure for depression is serving others.

11. The one thing everyone in this world has in common, is everyone just wants to be loved. So love.

Happy Mother's Day Weekend!!

These all sound just like the Kathy I knew and loved. I remember always loving the way she said beautiful. It was beauty-ful. The three of you girls all represent parts of her, and that is beautiful.

Love this Tam! Such a great tribute to a wise woman. You reflect her well, as I've heard you say and seen you live out many of these lines before.
