Mama's Bible

Four brothers left home for college, and they became successful doctors and lawyers and prospered. Some years later, they chatted after having dinner together. They discussed the gifts they were able to give their elderly mother who lived far away in another city.

The 1st said, "I had a big house built for Mama."

The 2nd said, "I had a $100,000 theatre built in the house."

The 3rd said, "I had my Mercedes dealer deliver an SL600 to her."

The 4th said, "You know how Mamma loved reading the Bible and you know she can't read anymore, because she can't see very well. I met this preacher who told me about a parrot that can recite the entire bible. It took 20 preachers 12 years to teach him. I had to pledge to contribute $100,000 a year for 20 years to the church, but it was worth it. Mama just has to name the chapter and verse and the parrot will recite it."

 

The other brothers were impressed. After the holidays Mama sent out her Thank You notes. She wrote: 

Milton, the house you built is so huge I live in only one room, but I have to clean the whole house. Thanks anyway.

Marvin, I am too old to travel. I stay home, I have my groceries delivered, so I never use the Mercedes. The thought was good. Thanks. 

Michael, you gave me an expensive theater with Dolby sound. It could hold 50 people, but all of my friends are dead, I've lost my hearing and I'm nearly blind. I'll never use it. Thank you for the gesture; just the same.

Dearest Melvin,  you were the only son to have the good sense to give a little thought to your gift. The chicken was delicious. Thank you.

Luv Ya, Mama

Today's Spiritual Quote
If we do not live, speak and think in the language of enchantment, including naming angels and recognizing spirits…then the soul will go out of our lives and communities, and we will wonder why nothing seems to hold together and nothing seems to have value any more. end quote
