Outside Benefits

My mom and I were happy to be able to sit outside and soak up some sunshine for a while again today. The other day when we were out, she remembered when she learned about how good it is for you to be outside. She was in 8th grade. She attended a Catholic school, but they collaborated with the local public school. The class would go over to the public school once a week for Home Economics. During that course they learned how to take care of a baby. They were taught that babies should get 10 minutes of sunshine every day. Part of the work was to create a scrapbook using pictures from magazines and such depicting what to do. My mom remembered vividly the picture she used of a cute little baby girl in a pink dress, enjoying the outdoors. I am always amazed at the things she remembers. I also think it’s great how science supports and explains many of the things she learned so long ago. And I loved to hear how the schools worked together for the good of the children and the community.

I Found God today in my mom’s childhood story.
