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
