    MAMA'S BIBLE


    Four brothers left home for college, and they became successful
    doctors and lawyers and prospered. Some years later, they
    chatted after
    having dinner together. They discussed the gifts they were able
    to give
    their elderly mother who lived far away in another city.
    The first said, "I had a big house built for Mama."
    The second said, "I had a hundred thousand dollar theater built
    in the
    house."
    The third said, "I had my Mercedes dealer deliver an SL600 to
    her."
    The fourth said, "You know how Mamma loved reading the Bible and
    you
    know she can't read anymore because she can't see very well. I
    met this
    preacher who told me about a parrot that can recite the entire
    bible.
    It took twenty preachers 12 years to teach him. I had to pledge
    to
    contribute $100,000 a year for twenty years to the church, but
    it was
    worth it. Mamma just has to name the chapter and verse and the
    parrot
    will recite it." The other brothers were impressed.
    After the holidays Mom sent out her Thank You notes. She wrote:
    "Milton , the house you built is so huge I live in only one
    room, but
    I have to clean the whole house. Thanks anyway."
    "Marvin, I am too old to travel. I stay home; I have my
    groceries
    delivered, so I never use the Mercedes. The thought was good.
    Thanks."
    "Michael, you gave me an expensive theater with Dolby sound, it
    could
    hold 50 people, but all of my friends are dead, I've lost my
    hearing
    and I'm nearly blind. I'll never use it. Thank you for the
    gesture just
    the same." "Dearest BOB, you were the only son to have the good
    sense to give a
    little thought to your gift... The chicken was delicious. Thank
    you."
    Luv Ya, Mama
