Mom's Day

None of us would be where we are today without our moms (Just call me Captain Obvious).

Mom's are the ultimate multi-taskers - able to leap tall buildings with a single bound - while changing a diaper and cooking dinner at the same time.
Here's what I know about moms:
They never get a break.
There is the story of a 15 year old boy who was hungry at the end of the day.  He found his mother in bed and was suddenly seized with concern. 
"Mom, are you sick or something?"
"Well, as a matter of fact," his mother replied weakly, "I am not feeling too well."
The boy responded with a furrowed brow, and after a brief pause, he then added:  "Don't you worry a bit about dinner.  I'm getting pretty big now, and I'll be happy to carry you down to the stove!"
This Sunday, dads and kids - give mom a break!
Secondly, they are the most quizzed people on the planet.
In a recent survey, involving 1,000 mothers - they found that on average, from breakfast to late afternoon, the stay at home mom faces one question every two minutes and 36 seconds.
That adds up to about 105,120 questions per year.
The questions spike during meal times.  Girls aged four are the most curious, asking an incredible 390 questions per day.  On the other end of the spectrum, boys aged none ask the least amount of questions.
According to the survey, the moms claimed that these were the top five toughest questions (in order):
Why is water wet?  Where does the sky end?  What are shadows made of?  Why is the sky blue?  How do fish breathe under water?
Moms, God bless you!
"May God give you strength, wisdom and knowledge as you raise your children as, "unto the Lord".
You are appreciated and loved!
BTW, Debbie will be speaking this coming Sunday in both morning services.  You won't want to miss her sharing!  Bring a friend!
