LUTHER NEWS: Enjoying tea time for Mothers day

Yesterday I went to two Teas... or should I say I went to Tea twice? I am not sure which would be grammatically correct. At any rate, I did go to a Tea in the morning and another in the afternoon.

The Teas were held at a private pre-school, where my daughter Patty teaches. She has a class of twenty in the morning, and another class of 17 0r 18 in the afternoon. These children are three and four years old.

She invited me, and since her morning class has two of her grandchildren attending, and the afternoon class has one of her grandchildren attending, I decided I’d better go to both Teas.

The program was a Mother’s Day Tribute to the children’s mothers, and all the mothers were there. Before she started the program, Patty introduced me, and told the children that I was her mother. I am sure they were all quite surprised that their teacher had a mother! I do believe they think their teacher has no life away from them. Some of them think she lives in that little two room school.

The children sang songs for their mothers. Not only did they sing, but they also signed! One of the songs they sang was in Russian! Can you imagine? There were about four songs, then a story that they and the teacher read together.

After the program, the children presented their mothers with a gift they made for her.

It was a necklace, which they put in a baby food jar, on which they had printed her name. Then they had snacks... and a good time was had by all!

I must say this was the first time I have ever attended a class conducted by my daughter, and I was very impressed, and very proud of her. She is a born teacher!

I hope all of you had a wonderful Mother’s Day.

I know you are all looking forward to Luther Days, which will be here before you know it, and if you plan to be one of the vendors, please get your permit. People with a Luther address will get theirs free. They need lots of vendors to keep the visitors busy. You can have a table of crafts, food, or whatever you can come up with. Check with Patty Pacola, and perhaps she can help you come up with some ideas.

Here are a few words of wisdom I found somewhere and thought I would share with you:

Its hard to make a comeback when you haven’t been anywhere.

Only time the world beats a path to your door is when you’re in the bathroom.

If God wanted me to touch my toes, he would have put them on my knees.

When I’m finally holding all the cards, why does everyone decide to play chess?

Its not hard to meet expenses... they’re everywhere.

The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.

These days, I spend a lot of time thinking about the hereafter... I go somewhere to get something and then wonder what I’m here after.

Have a great week!
