Thank you for visiting My News.

My heart is heavy tonight because my mother passed away on Saturday. It is too early for me to reflect on what she meant to me.

I certainly wouldn’t be who I am today without her. She taught me to read. The elementary school I attended used look-say, instead of phonics the year I was in first grade. Mom had to step up and teach me.

The word that comes to mind when I think of Mother is courage. I’m reminded of Edna St. Vincent Millay’s poem “The Courage My Mother Had” since Mother faced life’s challenges without fear.
