As Mother's Day nears we think of all the things our moms did for us growing up ... making skinned knees feel better ... sewing Halloween costumes ... helping us with our homework ... making treats for us to take to school on our birthday.

Best of all, though, is the advice Mom gave us.

As a tribute to all mothers, we'd like to share your memories of the best advice your mother ever gave you.

Email your memories to zelda@madisoncourier.com or send them by FAX to (812) 273-6903 or by mail to "Mom" c/o The Madison Courier, 310 Courier Square, Madison, IN 47250.

Be sure to include your name and phone number so we can call you if we need more information.
