As we prepare to honor our moms on Mother's Day, I am asking readers about the "best advice your mom ever gave you."

And yes, the easy and obvious answer for all us is "eat your vegetables," but that the wisdom of moms doesn't end there.

I don't know if I can say there is any one piece of advice that I can single out, but it is my mom's positivity and encouragement that come to my mind.

Of course, many moms likely have an unreasonable estimation of their kids abilities. But where would we be without that belief instilled in us from an early age?

Especially if you grew up in a "produce family," what was the best advice that your mom ever gave you? What has your mom passed on to you? And if you don't tell us here, be sure to tell your mom on Sunday.
