This is part of a national initiative, “Million Minutes,” adopted this year by the BCYS, to encourage all of us to (re)discover the peace, tranquility and value of silence: within the stillness, God speaks. Every minute of silence can also be sponsored, raising money for projects led by young people in our Diocese.

A MUM'S LIFE.   Take your plate into the kitchen, please. Take it downstairs when you go. Don't leave it there, take it upstairs. Is that yours? Don't hit your brother. I'm talking to you. Just a minute, please, can't you see I'm talking? I said, Don't interrupt. Did you brush your teeth? What are you doing out of bed? Go back to bed. You can't watch in the afternoon. What do you mean, there's nothing to do? Go outside. Read a book. Turn it down. Get off the phone. Tell your friend you'll call her back. Right now! Hello. No, she's not home. She'll call you when she gets home. Take a jacket. Take a jumper. Take one anyway. Someone left his shoes in front of the TV. Get the toys out of the hall. Get the boys out of the bathtub. Get the toys off the stairs. Do you realize that could kill someone? Hurry up. Hurry up. Everyone's waiting. I'll count to ten and then we're going without you. Did you go to the bathroom? If you don't go, you're not going. I mean it. Why didn't you go before you left? Can you hold it? What's going on back there? Stop it. I said, Stop it! I don't want to hear about it. Stop it or I'm taking you home right now. That's it. We're going home. Give me a kiss. I need a hug. Make your bed. Clean up your room. Set the table. I need you to set the table! Don't tell me it's not your turn. Please move your chair in to the table. Sit up. Just try a little. You don't have to eat the whole thing. Stop playing and eat. Would you watch what you're doing? Move your glass. It's too close to the edge. Watch it! More, what? More, please. That's better. Just eat one bite of salad. You don't always get what you want. That's life. Don't argue with me. I'm not discussing this anymore. Go to your room. No, ten minutes are not up. One more minute. How many times have I told you, don't do that. Where did the cookies go? Eat the old fruit before you eat the new fruit. I'm not giving you mushrooms. I've taken all the mushrooms out. See? Is your homework done? Stop yelling. If you want to ask me something, come here STOP YELLING. IF YOU WANT TO ASK ME SOMETHING, COME HERE. I'll think about it. Not now. Ask your father. We'll see. Don't sit so close to the television, it's bad for your eyes. Calm down. Calm down and start over. Is that the truth? Fasten your seat belt. Did everyone fasten their seat belts? I'm sorry, that's the rule. I'm sorry, that's the rule. I'm sorry, that's the rule. By Delia Ephron.  Who can relate?  Happy Mother’s Day to all!
