|Annie, 6 years old, gets home from school. She had her first family planning lesson at school.|
Her mother, very interested, asks, How did it go?"
"I nearly died of shame!" She answers!
"Why?" Her Mother asked.
Annie said, "Kate from down the road, says that the stork brings babies.
Sally next door said you can buy babies at the orphanage.
Pete in my class says you can buy babies at the hospital."
Her mother answers laughingly, "But that's no reason to be ashamed?"
"No... well that's how I felt when I had to tell them that we were so poor.... that you and daddy had to make me yourselves!"
|A little girl was sitting next to her grandfather as he read her a bedtime story. From time to time, she would take her eyes off the book and reach up and touch his wrinkled cheek. She touched her own cheek after she touched his.|
After a little while of thinking she asked, "Grandpa, did God make you?"
He looked at her and said, "Yes, sweetheart God made me a long time ago."
She paused for a few seconds and then asked, "Grandpa, did God make me too?"
He replied, "Yes, indeed pumpkin, God made you just a little while ago."
Feeling their respective faces again, she whispered to him, "God's getting better at it, isn't he?"
