Title A Mother's Love
Description these children look so different. How I marvel at the blessings medicine has given us and the memories of the Pest House always remind me that helping and loving our neighbors has always been a basic tenet of our Gospel." HOHORABI-E MENTION AflSCDOTE A MOTHER'S LOVE Glenn Thomas 2850 Monroe Blvd. Ogden, Utah 84405 The frisky three-month-old bull calf was tethered with a thin rope to graze along the dry ditch bank in the top of our lot at Wales. When under age five, I decided the begging calf was thirsty and needed a drink. The calf, thinking the water was milk, lunged forward and broke the rope. In a moment, being satisfied with the contents of the bucket, he then came at me, butting me to the ground with his head. I helplessly tried to get up to defend myself, but there was no -way. With each jab, his sharp horns bruised my tender body again and again. It seemed I was doomed to destruction. I screamed for my mother as loud as I could. She was in the house. It seemed an eternity. Finally my mother heard my frantic screaming. As soon as she saw what was happening, she grabbed the broom and came frantically running. The calf didn't have a ghost of a chance against so formidable an opponent. Mother swung the broom with all her power, hit the calf in the head and almost knocked him down. He ran to the far corner of the lot and stayed there. She picked me up and tenderly-carried me into the house. Although my body was covered with black and blue bruises, there were no broken bones, and within a couple days I was once again in good condition, Unintentionally, my older brothers had teased the bull calf into becoming mean. This was perhaps one of the earliest impressive memories of my childhood at Wales. Even though more than seventy years have come and gone since that memorable day, I shall always cherish this as one of the many loving, thoughtful acts of my dear mother. 8
