Mother's Day

I lost my mama two days before my 24th birthday. She was buried the day after. I never married and therefore never had children.

But I was a teacher and in turn a mother to many. I showed discipline, taught them more than information, showed them love and kindness, and hopefully set them on a good path ahead. I didn't get a thank you or a card today, but remember all of those kids who were so dear to me.

I was not a mama even though I longed to be.  I lost mine way too soon. But I'm thankful for the moments I could teach and be a part of children's lives.
