Two children ordered their mother to stay in bed one Mother's Day morning. As she lay there looking forward to breakfast in bed, the sound of cooking and
the smell of bacon drifted up from the kitchen,
but no breakfast tray appeared.

After a long wait she finally went downstairs to see what happened. Both children were sitting at the table eating bacon and eggs.

"Do you like our Mother's Day surprise?" one asked. "We made our breakfast all by ourselves."


“Dear Lord”, the preacher began with arms extended and a rapturous look on his upturned face: “With out you we are but dust….”

He would have continued, but at that moment one very obedient little girl (who was listening carefully) leaned over to her mother and asked quite audibly in her shrill little girl voice, “Mommy, WHAT is butt dust?”

Church was pretty much over at that point….


And lastly, for the mother of us all...

Hail holy queen enthroned above,
Oh Maria.
Hail mother of mercy and of love,
Oh Maria.
Triumph all ye cherubim,
Sing with us ye seraphim.
Heaven and earth resound the hymn.
Salve, salve, salve regina. :
