That Religion Book….


With Tania now in a parochial high school, I made sure I ordered all the necessary textbooks through Amazon so she was ready the first day of school. Much to my surprise, after the first day of school she informed me we didn’t have the Religion book yet. I remembered commenting on this religion workbook when it arrived and showed it to Tania. She didn’t remember this, of course. I spent a lot of time the next day scouring her disaster of a room and other places that might be hiding this religion book. I couldn’t find it anywhere.
I later showed Tania a picture of the book off of the internet and she looked at me in frustration and said, “Mom! I have ‘that’ book in my locker at school. I just need that other religion book.” I then asked her what the book was called. To my amazement she replied, “The Bible.”
I couldn’t believe I spent better part of a day looking for a religion book…which was really The Bible! (I never thought of it as a religion book, but obviously Tania does!)
