Story of the Week
Why I loved my Mom...
(Author Unknown)

        Mom and Dad were watching TV when Mom said, "I'm tired, and  it's getting late. I think I'll go to bed."

        She went to the kitchen to make sandwiches for the next day's lunches, rinsed out the popcorn bowls, took meat out of the freezer for supper the following evening, checked the cereal box levels, filled the sugar container, put spoons and bowls on the table and started the coffee pot for brewing the next morning. She then put some wet clothes in the dryer, put a load of clothes into the wash, ironed a shirt and secured a loose button. She picked up the game pieces left on the table and put the telephone book back into the drawer. She watered the plants, emptied a wastebasket and hung up a towel to dry. She yawned and stretched and headed for the bedroom.

        She stopped by the desk and wrote a note to the teacher, counted out some cash for the field trip, and pulled a textbook out from hiding under the chair. She signed a
birthday card for a friend, addressed and stamped  the envelope and wrote a quick note for the grocery store. She put both near her purse.
        Mom then creamed her face, put on moisturizer, brushed and flossed her teeth and trimmed her nails.  

        Dad called out, "I thought you were going to bed."
        "I'm on my way," she said.

        She put some water into the dog's dish and put the cat outside, then made sure the doors were locked. She looked in on each of the kids and turned out a bedside lamp, hung up a shirt, threw some dirty socks in the hamper, and had a brief conversation with the one up still doing homework.

        In her own room, she set the alarm, laid out clothing for the  next day, straightened up the shoe rack. She added three things to her list of things to do for tomorrow.

        About that time, Dad turned off the TV and announced to no one in particular, "I'm going to bed."   And he did...without another thought.

 Anything extraordinary here?......Wonder why women live  longer...?


The Prayer
Dear God,        
        Thanks yet again for Moms!!!!

You ALL are Within the Infinitely Loving Embrace of our Universal Parent,

The Creator's Eternal Love to all of You,
Pastor Daniel
