If my mom did this today______ I’m afraid _____ would happen!!!

19 Things Your Mom Did… That No Mom Would Think Of Doing Now!

1. Let you ride in a car without a seatbelt – I have fond memories of riding in the car with my mom—and her sticking her arm out to prevent me from sliding off the seat when she made a sudden stop. Seatbelts, schmeatbelts, I’m still alive, aren’t I?

2. Style your hair. With her spit – You haven’t been loved until your mom smooths your ‘do into place by spitting in her hand and then running it through your hair. With all the money she saved on styling gel, she saved up enough to buy you those pink foam rollers when you were a teenager.

3. Put a Coke in your lunchbox – I don’t know about you, but I miss the days when it was acceptable to put a soda in your kid’s lunchbox. It sure was cheaper and easier to find than organic kombucha in a kid-safe, bpa-free pouch.

Something You’ve Always Wanted to Finish?

90 year old man receives his high school diploma!

For Lou Schipper, walking to school uphill both ways would have been an improvement. In the 1940s, he walked about a mile from his Aurora, Indiana home to catch a train to Cincinnati every day to attend St. Xavier High School.

“If he had a nickel left, he could catch the bus from Union Terminal to St. Xavier High School,” said Dottie Schipper, Lou Schipper’s wife of 58 years.

On Friday, St. Xavier High School honored the 90-year-old Schipper with his high school diploma, more than 70 years after he would have graduated.

But Schipper didn’t graduate. It wasn’t the long commute that cut his education short, it was World War II. He set his mind to enlisting. He was only 17, and said on Friday that he couldn’t remember how he convinced his mother to let him leave.

“I had my mind made up I was going,” Schipper said.

Schipper joined the Navy “Seabees,” the United States Naval Construction Forces, where he served until his discharge in October 1946.

Hope inside of all of Us
