On Rocky Stories: No 45, "My mother didn't go to church but she was one prayin' woman"

As part of a continuing series on Baha'i Views of stories told by master storyteller and Baha'i Rocky Crockrell, here is another installment, this from the most recent Baha'i devotional in our home. Here Rocky tells about living in his mother's care as a boy back in Ohioan Appalachia, about the time when rent was due and what birthdays and Christmases were like. "We were totally happy."
After spending part of our evening reflecting on the moral code of people living in rural communities in America, we end our devotions listing to a recording of the Canton Spiritituals singing "Mississippi Poor Boy." Here is a 90 second clip. -gw
