A Mother's Faith
Sunday, May 14, 2006
HUMOR: Today is Mother's Day—a time to talk about moms and their kids. There is nothing that can compare with the relationship a mother has with her little boy or girl. Dads love their children just as much, but they always seem so busy with outside things. And when they do take the time, they like to do the big stuff—go to the zoo, take the son fishing or hunting or teach him how to fly a kite, but mothers do all the little insignificant things like; give birth, change diapers, wash their clothes, give them a bath, feed them, take them to school, sit by their bed when they are sick, place Band-Aids on the knees when they fall, and dry their eyes when they cry.

"I have to sleep in Daddy's room." A long silence was broken at last by his shaky little voice:
"The big sissy."

There is never a dull moment around children.
