Written December 31, 2017
Judge Rembert
Guest Columnist

Well it was almost Christmas...
She was walking in WalMart...
She spied the box...
It was a pretty metal box...
Box of Russell Stover chocolate...
Mother loved Russell Stover...

She bought it...
She brought it home...
She wrapped it...
She put it under the tree...
Life was good...

Two day later the problem arose...
She loved chocolate...
All chocolate...
There is no bad chocolate...
Some is just better than others...

She woke in the night...
Chocolate in the house woke her...
She got up and unwrapped the box...
Opened it and ate the chocolate...
There was time to buy more...

Trip to WalMart...
She got another box...
Exact same evereything...
Brought it home...
Wrapped it...
Put it under the tree...

Two days...
Woke in the night...
Chocolate in the house...
Got up...
Unrapped the box...
Ate the chocolate...

But this can not continue til Christmas...
Got out paper and a pen...
Wrote a note...
“I owe you one box...
Box of Russell Stover Chocolate. 

Get it when we are shopping
and take it home”
She wrapped the box again...
She went back to sleep...
Christmas her Mother got the box...
Later she got the chocolate...
Life was good...

Her Mother is in heaven now.
She has both boxes...
She thinks of her Mother when...
When she uses the boxes...
She things of her Mother when...
When she sees Russell Stover...

Actually she thinks of her Mother...
Thinks of her daily...
Mothers never leave us...
They live in every child...
No matter the age of the child...

---More About Judge Rembert: WWII made Judge an only child when her half-brother was killed in the war. She lived in a tiny town in South Carolina until she was eight and her Mother went to work. She was sent to a boarding school in Belmont, N.C. From that time on she has lived back and forth in the two Carolinas. They are both home. She was born dyslexic and did not know what the problem was or that it had a name until she was about 45. She was unable to spell so she never put words on paper until she was 65 and had a computer with spell check. She comes from a long line of story tellers and a Mother that taught her much by telling stories. Stories about people and how they faced life and how they dealt with problems. If you read what she writes you may hear her Mother and her Grandmother talking to her. She is thrilled to know that anyone reads her words and finds them interesting. Oh, she is 75 now and she now makes her home in Aiken, S.C. If you like Judge’s writings or would like to comment on them let her know by emailing judgerembert@bellsouth.net.
