SUNDAY SPECIAL... Thanks, Mum! ...The most precious treasure a man can find. Proverbs 31:10.. Erma Bombeck wrote: When God was creating mothers, on His sixth day of overtime the angel said, Youre fiddling around a lot on this one. God replied, Have you seen the specs on this order? Shes to have 18,000 replaceable moving parts, run on black coffee and leftovers, have a kiss that cures anything from broken legs to disappointed love affairs...and six pairs of hands! Six pairs of hands? No way! the angel said. God said, And the challenging bit is the three pairs of eyes mothers need. One pair that sees through doors, another in back of her head that sees what she shouldnt be able to see, another in front for looking at a child whos goofed and saying, I understand, and I love you, without speaking. The angel said, Lord, take a break. Tomorrow... I cant, God said. Im close to creating something so like Myself. Already she can heal herself when shes sick, feed a family on a pound of minced beef, and get a nine year-old to stand under a shower! Touching her, the angel said, Shes too soft! But so tough! God replied. You cant imagine what this mother can endure. Can it think? asked the angel. Not only think, it reasons and compromises, God said. Running his finger across the mothers cheek, the angel said, Theres a leak! Its not a leak, God said. Its a tear. Whats it for? asked the angel. Its for joy, sadness, pain, disappointment, loneliness and pride. The angel declared, Lord, Youre a Genius!. Just a columnists fictional story, but well worth pondering. Thanks, Mum! **TheWordForToday**
