Becoming a Mother to the "Motherless"
There are people who come and go and then there are the people that have been there since I started helping out. People like Rosie (in the photo). She is the one who started to call me "Mami". At first i wondered if it is because she thinks I'm old enough to be her Mami - but she's in her 30s so that is just not possible. So i started to ask around as to why she calls me that. It's a sign of respect. She knows that I care. She can feel the love. I always have a hug for her (and everyone else who wants a hug). I am now cooking for them. I play dominoes with them. I've taken time out of my life to be with them. I have become their spiritual Mother. I am a mother to the "motherless".
