Erma Bombeck said, “When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, ‘I used everything you gave me’.” She was an American humorist who had a tremendous amount of popularity. She wrote a newspaper column that described home life from the mid 60’s to late 90’s. She wrote books, most of which were bestsellers. Her humor was both down to earth and delightful. She gave our lives a wonderful lift. Regardless of how we were feeling she could always make us feel better with her humor.
I wonder if she knew how smart she was. During her life she brought a lot of laughter to us and wonderful words of wisdom. All of which we can use today. I listed some of her quotes here and hope you get a chuckle and that one or more will touch your heart.
