ISLAND LIFE SHORTS
Tell us your mom's words of wisdom
Maybe it was mom's advice to you on love and relationships. Or her two cents on how you should — or shouldn't — spend your hard-earned money. Did your mother share priceless words of wisdom that have stayed with you to this day?
Fill in the blank, in 50 words or less: "Mom was right when she said ..." We'll publish our favorite responses in the paper in honor of Mother's Day. Send your answer, along with your name, age, daytime phone number and address to: Mother's Day, Island Life, The Honolulu Advertiser, 605 Kapi'olani Blvd., Honolulu, HI 96813; or e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Mother's Day" in the subject line. Submissions may be edited.
We also welcome photos of you with your mom — original prints or high-resolution images — which may appear in print or online. Original prints will not be returned. Deadline is April 26.
