Sentimental Sunday The Hero Instructed His Children
My granddaughter was blessed last week and given a name in keeping with our beliefs. My son, daughter-in-law and myself had come down to my daughter's house to be there for the blessing. There was 8 of us in the house with 2 bathrooms getting ready for the event. I made the remark to my son, "How did we ever survive with all 8 of us as you all were growing up with only one bathroom?" He laughed and said, "Dad gave us a Family Home Evening lesson on how to take a bath." Now there was a smile on his face. "I still remember the lesson. Dad was standing there a bar of soap in one hand and a wash cloth in the other. He said, 'You dip in the water and get wet. Take the soap and lather and scrub with the cloth. Then dip and rinse. You are done and out for the next person.' " By this time my son was laughing just at the thought of the Hero standing with the soap and wash cloth and giving the dipping motion. I didn't remember this one. I am so glad he shared.
I hope some of the other children will stop by and give their perspective. I am giggling as I write this because it is such a Heroism.
