“BITS  and  PIECES”

smile“SMILE – A - WHILE” (what some mothers said)
COLUMBUS'S MOTHER: I don't care what you've discovered, Christopher.  You could have written.
MICHELANGELO'S MOTHER: Mike, can't you paint on walls like other children?  Do you have any idea how hard it is to get that stuff off the ceiling?
HUMPTY DUMPTY'S MOTHER: Humpty, if I've told you once, I've told you a hundred times not to sit on that wall. But would you listen to me? No!
GOLDILOCKS'S MOTHER: I've got a bill here for a broken chair from the Bear family.  Do you know anything about this Goldie?
THOMAS EDISON'S MOTHER: Of course I'm proud that you invented the electric light bulb, Thomas. Now turn off that light and get to bed.
NAPOLEON'S MOTHER: All right, Napoleon. If you aren't hiding your report card inside your jacket, then take your hand out of there and prove it.

AN  EASTER  PRAYER
Like Mary in tears at the empty tomb with the stone rolled back, wondering where you were, so in life we can be downhearted, even desperate for your help, your presence, your grace in our lives, not knowing how to find you. And there you were, Lord, nearby, and when Mary recognised you her tears turned to joy. Lord, help us to recognise you, to see your presence in our lives, and not to be despondent. Help us to find you when we seek you, so that the sorrows of life will turn to joy, the joy of knowing that you are alive and with us always. “Alleluia! The peace and joy of the risen Lord be yours this Eastertide.”
