A Tribute to My Mama Rock: My First Teacher
She has always been Mama Rock...Solid and Strong no matter what was wrong...
Her strength throughout difficult times surface every time something went wrong.
Many times when I knew she was being overwhelmed, she stood firm in her convictions that things would change and she would somehow get over her pain.
Mama Rock you raised a family of ten all by yourself...
Mama Rock underneath all those silent tears that you kept wiping away from your serene face was a testimony of your strength.
Mama Rock I learned the words durability from you, I picked up the skills of survival from you, I learned how to look adversity in the face and walk with grace because of you...
Mama Rock every moment of your life had been a battle and you survived with your pride and dignity intact.
Mama Rock I wanted to be the first and not the last of your children to honor you for being a solid foundation.
Mama Rock you gave us love non-stop and I am proud to be a part of someone like you.
You are still my favorite girl even though your flesh left this world...
Mama Rock; Solid and Strong you are missed...
Dedicated to Ann Canty My Mama Rock.
