It’s the month of May! Graduation is coming, and Mother’s Day just passed. My mama is gone, but I remember how she made efforts to teach me bits and pieces about many things—flower gardening, jigsaw puzzles, dippers in the sky, baking tips, on and on…. She was my first teacher. We’d be in the kitchen, and she’d say, "Well now, let’s dust the crust with powdered sugar before filling the pie crust. We want it sweet!" Many decades later, she became a resident in a nursing home.
