Here Today Gone Tamale

Good morning! 

One of the best perks about working at a school with a strong Hispanic community is the homemade tamales! Delivered hot and fresh to your classroom door! Chicken and pork! Yum!  

I love nothing more than Mexican food. It’s always been my favorite. Especially homemade hot tamales. I first tasted them while living on the border of Texas and Mexico in Eagle Pass, TX straight out of college. 

I found a lady while working at Jenks West and a mother of one of our students that also made them. I loved the treat.

I’ve since found another lady at my new school that brings her homemade tamales to school to sell.

What a talent! What a gift to others!

It takes time and energy to make them by hand. They are a true gift handed down from generations. Especially in our world of fast food everything. I appreciate that talent.

What’s your talent? Your gift to others? What tradition do you carry down from generation to generation? 

I would say mine is carrying for the underdogs. Wanting to help those less fortunate. 

I remember my grandmother being involved with Cookson Hills, a Christian school in Kansas, OK. I remember my mother being involved with Woodland Park Home here in Tulsa.

It’s in my genes. So is the love for Mexican food. 😊 Bueno, Bell, Chimi’s, El Tequila,Ted’s, or homemade tamales. Call me and let’s go eat if it’s also in yours!

Muy Delicioso!

As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace.                          1Peter 4:10

Love and laughter,
