My Mother repeatedly told me,

     “Don’t kiss and tell.”

Through many years of life experiences, I have both practiced her words and have also at long last come to another conclusion.

The “Don’t kiss and tell” practice should pertain to BOTH parties. Think about it and heed my mother’s advice. One exception might be when you speak to a professional in confidence, which might improve your “kissing” and give you peace of mind.

Mother was quite intelligent, knowledgeable, and wise in many ways. Once, after her death, I visited my former home town in Georgia. After attending a Presbyterian church service there, one of the members came up to me and stated, your mother was the backbone of our church. Thank you, Dear God.
