She also has an interesting section entitled, “Things I’ve learned in life:”
- You can’t do anything about the milk that is already spilt. Clean up the mess and be more careful next time.
- Go out and play – but not until the work is done.
- If you have to borrow money, do it from your own savings and pay it back!
- Don’t put anything on a credit card that you won’t see when the bill comes. Along with that, never charge anything you can not pay off at the end of the month.
- Be faith filled – it keeps you balanced and is a heck of a fountain from which to draw strength.
- To those who are blessed comes added responsibility to give back.
- Stay humble – it keeps you honest.
- “Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re Braver than you Believe, Stronger than you Seem, and Smarter than you Think…” – Christopher Robin to Pooh
“The Northwest Herald Endorses Mary Donner for McHenry County Board!” the web site says, and so does the Daily Herald.
There’s even a PACE video featuring Donner. Crystal Lake Mayor Aaron Shepley, a paid member of the PACE Board is also featured.
