This Sunday is Mother's Day (5/11/08).
During the Mother's Day service at Sheridan United Church, our choir will sing: 'Faith of our Mothers.' We are asking all the singers to bring their children, grandchildren, nephews, nieces or 'young friends' to join the choir in this tribute to all members. The kids don't necessarily have to sing along, but we'll take any contributions by the kids (and I know that can be dangerous!).
We would love to have you join us. The song is a very simple 4 part arrangement and you could sight read it with us.
Consider this an invitation to join us as we honor all mothers.
We will rehearse the piece in the Sheridan United Methodist Church sanctuary at 10:00 am.
A Mother's creed...
"I'd like to be the ideal Mother, but I'm too busy raising my kids."
A teacher gave her class of second graders a lesson on the magnet and what it does.
The next day in a written test, she included this question: "My full name has six letters. The first one is 'M.' I am strong and attractive. I pick up things. What am I?"
When the test papers were turned in, the teacher was astonished to find that almost 50 percent of the students answered the question with the word "Mother."
