“Since she died, I have come across hundreds of what my mother liked to call Kittisms™, written on everything from lined notebook paper and hotel stationery, to napkins and post it notes. Whatever was close at hand that she could write on. I’m not sure if she really came up with any of these sayings herself, or if she decided after hearing them somewhere, that they could have been something she would or did say. But, for those of you who spent any time with my mother, you know it really doesn’t matter, because once she spoke them, they were hers.

I hope these Kittisms™ will spark a special memory of her, bring a smile or even a tear to your face and warmth to your heart.

Every day, tell the ones you love, how you feel.”
