Mama Took Care of Me tells the true story of growing up and growing old. A young girl or boy hearing this story may have that aha! moment—as young Marietta did at age five—when she realized that someday, life will come full circle.
Marietta Murphy is a retired teacher from Minnesota. She works part time with special needs adults. At the age of five, she told her mama that she would take care of her someday. Years later she did with the help of her brothers and sisters. The care she provided her mother, which matched the care her mother provided her as a child, shaped this story.
