Mama is conflicted over doing what she wants or being supportive of her son. She wants to help everyone, but in her heart she knows what's most important. She wants her son and daughter-in-law to be happy, she wants her grandson to have a home, she wants her daughter to go to college. She wants everything for everyone else. The resolution to her conflict is to help them all, although, she doesn't realize that Walter will not follow her wishes for the division of the money.
