My Mother: A Teacher

My mother has one husband, two children, three homes in her married life, and...skipping ahead quite a few numbers...has taught hundreds of children as an aunt, neighbor, Sunday school teacher, and preschool teacher. From her I learned the alphabet, how to cook eggs, the value of a dumb comedy movie when menstrual cramps become intensely painful, and how to care for the people we love—and maybe the ones we struggle to love as well.

She values her relationship with God, can savor quiet time far better than I can, loved mountains far before I did, and delights in simple pleasures like chocolate with almonds, a good book, or a cozy blanket. She is peaceful, she is loving, and she is one of the best women I know.
