    [QUOTE=lillybeck;3027751]..."Clean your plate because there are hungry kids overseas"[QUOTE]

    My mother said something similar...."Clean your plate because there are starving children in China!" I never understood it, but it worked.

    I also like...."Life is not like a bowl of cherries. Life IS like a bowl of jalapenos. What you do today might burn your *ss tomorrow!"

    My mother use to say: love is blind and marriage is an eye opener.

    I will add a few other I have heard to these ...

    I feel like a one legged man at a sack race

    Slicker than an owl’s butt

    “For the Love”

    Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me

    A Day late and dollar short

    Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth

    I like 'what goes around, comes around'. And 'treat others the way you want them to treat you'.

    Mom would send me to get canned goods(beans, peaches,meat, ect) from the basement. I'd come back saying I couldn't find it. She would send me back saying "Look with your eyes open!" If she had to come get it "It's right in front of your face. Or "So close it could bite."
