Proverbs 8 5-8-22

Happy Mother’s Day to all who are moms and to all who have moms.

5:1-2 My child, pay attention to my wisdom, turn your ear to my words of insight, that you may maintain discretion and your lips may preserve knowledge.

GCFL (Good, Clean, Funny Laughs) is a place where I get most of my jokes for Wednesday Morning Blessings. I know that Dale Griffin uses it, too, as a source for his jokes. Occasionally, they publish inspirational anecdotes. Here is one appropriate for today:


When You Thought I Wasn’t Looking

When you thought I wasn’t looking you hung my first painting on the refrigerator,
and I wanted to paint another.
When you thought I wasn’t looking you fed a stray cat,

and I thought it was good to be kind to animals.
When you thought I wasn’t looking you baked a birthday cake just for me,

and I knew that little things were special things.
When you thought I wasn’t looking you said a prayer,

and I believed there was a God that I could always talk to.
When you thought I wasn’t looking you kissed me good-night,

and I felt loved.
When you thought I wasn’t looking I saw tears come from your eyes,

and I learned that sometimes things hurt–but that it’s all right to cry.
When you thought I wasn’t looking you smiled,

and it made me want to look that pretty [good], too.
When you thought I wasn’t looking you cared,

and I wanted to be everything I could be.
When you thought I wasn’t looking–I looked . . .

and wanted to say thanks for all those things you did when you thought I wasn’t looking.

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom. See you soon. Your son, Kelly.
