Blue Monday & Ruby Tuesday Too: ‘Mother Never Lies’

Yuma.May.2013 054
Mother and Child greet the faithful at Our Lady of Guadalupe Mission, Yuma, Arizona. One photo, two memes.

Mother never lies and never, ever tells tall tales.
Truth alone flies from her tongue, truth alone prevails.
If she told a whopper, birds would plummet from the skies,
And seas would shrink to puddles, for Mother never lies.

  1. There is something ingenuous and disarming about such statues in small churches the world round.

  2. Beverly Crawford

    I’m reminded of the lyric to “Let it be” …. When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me / Speaking words of wisdom, “let it be ….

  3. Nice one MMT
    Queen of angels pray for us
    Happy Wednesday


  4. Or so we all believe about our mothers … for a while.

  5. Great lines, Teach; but it’s clear you never met Mom.

  6. I can remember being a young child and aware how good it was you could trust you mother more than anyone else. Dad was good too but he was the one that encouraged you to do new things, and push the limits.

  7. So very tongue-in-cheek. It’s the truth if I say it’s the truth.

  8. Uh-oh … I do not qualify. LOL.

  9. My dad would tell my son a story. Son would immediately turn to my mom and ask if it was true. Every. Single, Time.
