Gladys Dunn recently moved into a retirement community in a small town out West.
One beautiful sunny Sunday morning, she walked down the street to a church that was not far from her apartment.
Gladys admired the large beautiful church building with it’s impressive stained glass windows as she stepped inside to attend the worship service.
Gladys, however, wasn’t too impressed with the sermon, shich she thought was kind of boring and just seemed to go on forever.
As she looked around the church, she noticed that a few of the members of the congregation were actually nodding off.
When the preacher finally finished his sermon, he encouraged the congregation to greet the other members of the congregation who were sitting close by.
Gladys turned towards the man who was sitting on her left.
He, too, had fallen asleep during the long boring sermon and was now yawning and stretching, trying to wake up again.
He smiled at her and Gladys returned the smile.
She politely offered her hand and said, “I’m Gladys Dunn”.
“Me too” the man replied. “I couldn’t take much more of that”.
