Spreading Good News (Part 143)

Hello, Blog Readers!

I look for information that is useful, inspirational, informative, motivational, awe-inspiring, educational—anything that is good “brain food,” and I blog it here for all who are interested.  Occasionally, I blog about something from my own knowledge or experience.

It is my hope that you will enjoy and be able to use most of what is here.

If you’d like, post a comment and let me know what you think.

A Little More of “The Calm”

by Joyce Fields

We kids had our disagreements, but I don’t recall any of us actually “brawling” with each other.  THAT was never allowed.

We were too busy having fun—outside and in the house—and being responsible.

We spent a lot of time visiting and playing with our cousins and having fun with the neighborhood kids.

My siblings and I took turns washing the dishes, sweeping the floors.  The boys were responsible for taking out the garbage and tending to the coal-burning furnace.  The girls had to help Mama with the ironing.

We were fortunate enough to have a television.  We took turns with that, too.  The girls’ choice one day; the boys’ the next.  Mama watched her soaps (they were called “stories” back then); Daddy watched the news and baseball.

Always calm.
