Tales From the City

My granddaughter the chatterbox

A story of talking in church.

We constantly remind our 5-year-old granddaughter that she talks too much. Over school vacation week, we took our three grandchildren to church for Friday morning Mass. During the homily, I glanced sideways to make sure they were all behaving. My granddaughter tilted her head toward the priest and said, “Talking too much, eh?”
