Mom was right

I was listening to the local Air1 station on the way into work this morning and there was a discussion that caught my attention. The hosts were asking listeners to complete the sentence, "My mom was right about _______." The first thing that came to me and the answer I am sticking with is "My mom was right about GOD." God is great and loving and my mother always emphasized that. I remember once she told me that God would grant anything if I prayed for it, except for him to kill someone. I don't remember why that last part came up, but I specifically remember it. I am extremely grateful that she brought me up to love and to worship God, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
God bless her. Mary, mother of God, pray for her.

Well, my mother was mostly fabulously wrong about stuff. I remember this gem:

"Every good quality you have, you get from me. Every bad quality you have, you get from your father."
