Tamyra’s Story

What would your child say about you in twenty years? For Mother’s Day, we asked moms in our Pizza & God group to reflect on their lives with their children. As part of a writing activity, they each looked forward to imagine their future relationship with their child. Below is Tamyra’s response in her own words.

In 20 years, Ja’Maya will be 22 years old and I hope this is what she will say about me:

My mom Tamyra is the best mom ever. Me and my mom have a great friendship and I can talk to her about anything. Although she is a mom before a friend, she listens to me and hears me out always. She is so supportive in everything I do, whether I’m right or wrong. I wouldn’t be the woman I am today if it wasn’t for my mother. Me and my mother may bump heads like every teenage girl and her mother, nothing is perfect, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. My mom is like my best friend and I am so very thankful for her. She tried the very best that she could and that is more than enough for me.
