    My mom would say "We are shi**ting in tall cotton" (when something good happened) When my granny would write a letter or when we would call and ask how she was - she always said "Fat and Sassy" - I still use that one.

    My Mom had a saying about poor people which she was most of her life. Her saying went like this. "Soap is cheap and patches are honorable"

    "Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned"

    Some of the ones I heard often growing up are: Money doesn't grow on trees, strike the iron while it's hot, a stitch in time saves nine, Nobody gets to pick out their face.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place...the End Times.

    My kids always thought money grew on trees...until I showed them the dead tree in the backyard!

    I remember ne from when I lived in Texas....Bless her heart. You cold make anything sound nice if you added "Bless her heart" at the end. For example...She is the homeliest person I have ever met...Bless her heart.

    [QUOTE=ShowMama;6352669][QUOTE=lillybeck;3027751]..."Clean your plate because there are hungry kids overseas"

    My mother said something similar...."Clean your plate because there are starving children in China!" I never understood it, but it worked.
    I generously offered to send my plate to China when we had liver and onions for supper once. I had to sit there and eat every bit of it. I didn't offer again....I hope the kids didn't starve because I sure wished I could have starved that night. Yuck!
