Johnson's Mama Must be Proud of her Son Apr 1, 2004
Once you've read "Mama Used to Say" you'll understand how this young man was inspired to march bravely into the world and achieve success in life. This isn't a large book, not in size or number of pages, but it is a major accomplishment in depicting the collective wisdom passed from generation to generation with a beguiling blend of wit, wisdom, and insight. As the title suggests, it was Johnson's "Mama" and other family members who influenced him to reach for the stars.
This fascinating book is the perfect Mother's Day gift.
Among the 20 heartwarming and inspirational tales in "Mama Used to Say," Johnson gives a testimony to the instinctive capacity of all mothers to love and to nurture their children not just through deeds, but through the spirited words that touch their souls. In the stories on "Life and Living," "Success and Failure," "Family and Relationships," and my favorite, "Love," the author reaches out to each of us in a personal way that has the capacity to give hope to the hopeless and guidance to the lost.
