Saturday Smile

From a Church Newsletter:

On a Sunday in March, a mother and her
sixteen-year-old daughter were returning
home from Church after listening to a 
sermon on Lent.  "I still don't understand 
what Lent is all about," said the daughter.

"Look at it this way," said her mother.
"During Lent, you're supposed to try extra
hard to improve your conduct and be a
better person. Lent is a time to realize that
it's wise to live everyday as if it were your last."

"But Mother," the daughter replied,
"I tried that once and you grounded me."
