In Defense of Mother Church

holy mother with child

Mother and Father 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 breakfast bowls, took meat out of the freezer for
dinner 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 washer, ironed a shirt and secured a loose button.
She picked up the games pieces left on the table, put the phone back on the charger and put the telephone book 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 text book 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 bag.
Mom then washed her face with a cleanser, put on her night cream and age fighting moisturizer, brushed and flossed her teeth and filed 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 and the patio light was on.
She looked in on each of the kids and turned out their bedside lamps and TV’s, hung up a shirt, threw some dirty socks into the laundry basket, and had a brief conversation with the one child up still doing homework.
In her own room, she set the alarm; laid out clothing for the next day, straightened up the show rack. She added three things to her six most important things to do list. She said her prayers, and visualized the accomplishment of her goals...
