More and more I come to realize that we were so lucky to have our mother as our matriarch as long as we did. Yes, there was much to desire in my brothers’ and my childhood, but her mother and she made us as good as we could want to be. The empathy, compassion and sheer humanity that’s embedded in us was worth all the hardships in the end.
Her teaching children for 18 years and sharing those ethics was a feat of greatness. We see this now as a few students share thanks for her compassion they received after her passing. The uplifting of others and making their lives better was her task there.
As I’ve said, those messages of thanks are proof positive that her task was accomplished there. I hoped to follow her into teaching, yet chronic illnesses stopped that. Now, I am reassessing how I could hope to do the same mission she accomplished.
This blog and vlogs are about the best I can hope for now, but I promise any I will increase my outreach further when possible.
