The children’s Christmas program at our church was an unexpected and delightful surprise this holiday season, bringing back a flood of memories.
Reluctantly compliant describes my attitude as a child when it came to religious duties. Given my druthers, I’d stay home and watch re-runs of “Flash Gordon” through to the end. But, Mom never asked for my input. Flash would be on the verge of fighting the giant Octosak, in a chamber filling with water, and the call came: time to go. And believe me, when Mom said it was time to go, it was time to go. Flash would have to make it without me.
