Book Description

She, a protector of 8 children (six girls and two boys) that were crammed together into a three-room flat on Saint Louis’ West-end was my hero that I think about each and every day. My eventually single mother achieves a great feat for a Clarksdale, Mississippi born sharecropper’s daughter that took on a single-parent household successfully. It was not pretty but successful just the same. What I understand now is that all the sustenance that we absorb deeply inside of ourselves can and will affect us one way or another in the long run. Could it have been the nurturing we receive as children that guided us into adulthood by this determined mother of eight. It references the basic GIGO concept (Good Information In and Good Information Out) that reflects on what we put into something is what we get out of it with a little bit of support and self determination. Mostly in the end it is the tempting taste of stuff that is sometimes bad for us, that always tastes so good to us temporarily that can get us into trouble. Until we finally learn to moderate our intake respectfully and pay attention to what our mothers like Mattie Mae has attempted to teach us to survive from day to day, will our full potential be achieved eventually.
