from my grandpa that his mom used to say
  1. "Always save your fork because the best is yet to come."
    My grandpa likes to say this in reference to dessert. Hehe. But, I don't take it quite as literal. To me, saving your fork or holding onto your fork symbolizes faith in God and faith in yourself. To never give up on God or yourself. You hold onto that faith to get through the bad times and know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel...the best is yet to come. :)
