“Every year another baby – – looks like “MOM” has her hands full – – with all of us – – but as I remember “MOM” was the best of Mothers’ – – as we always came first – – no matter what!
Back… in the day – – when our MOTHER was a young girl – – she did want to be a “Kindergarten Teacher” – – but in her Family – – being the thirteenth child and the last… and her parents getting older – – they wanted their daughter, Marie to be their personal care-giver – – not to have an out side position – as a teacher and not even to go into the Convent – as the Bishop of the HOLY NAME CHURCH – – came to their home to request – – but… only received a – – NO WAY will she leave us.
Since my MOTHER – – had a real LOVE to READ to us, children – – just the same as she would do… if she were a TEACHER – – I remember some of the stories that MOM would read from her BIBLE. ONE STORY… of the three young men who were thrown into the fiery furnace – – their names as she would read them – – just tickled my ears… to hear – – as the names were like none of the names for children – at least none… that I had ever heard… Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were three Jewish young men.
So… just in case… you have not heard this story – – thought that… I would add the story – – but this reader – – reads nothing at all like my MOTHER would read to us. “MOM” would put so much into every word – – that as I remember we would – – just sit… “spellbound” – – just waiting to hear something more – – it was like a magic time to hear… so spectacular – – we could hear this story – – over and over again.
