In less than two weeks, all their worldly goods were packed. Their girls had worked hard and were so happy. Mary Alice tried to see things through their eyes. Hannah was 10 years old, the caregiver, and her sister, eight year old Kimberly, a firecracker and so very loveable.
The sight of seeing their entire lives packed up and loaded overwhelmed Mary Alice. It was the first time in her life she understood the concept of, a heavy heart. As they started down the street, she felt a pain in her chest, the type of pain you have when you know your heart is breaking inside. She placed a hand on her chest and rubbed. Closing her eyes and talking herself out of screaming, she kept repeating over and over her silent prayer, “One foot in front of the other.”

Be Kind to All,  Beth
