Say your prayers

My mother very seldom spanked us children (I am one of eight); she usually left that to our stepfather. When she did, however, it left an impression.

Mother was very active in the Catholic church in my hometown, a town of 500 people in Iowa. She often cleaned the church with other women or helped serve at weddings, funerals, and other church functions.
