Things mothers said to their famous sons.
Jonah’s mother, “That’s a wonderful story—now tell me where you've really been.”
Edison’s mother, “Okay, I see you invented the light bulb--- now turn off that light and go to sleep.”

That second tablet begins with Exodus 20:12 (quoted above).

This Sunday is MOTHER’S DAY.
HONOR your mother.
If you can’t visit call.
Send a card or flowers.
And, if your mother is deceased, do something that will honor her.
