Mommy’s little helpers

While driving through a village, a little boy and girl caught my eye. They were carrying bundles of twigs on their heads, their tiny hands steadying them lest they fall. They were walking with the energetic and zig zag gait typical of children. When they reached the highway that ran across the village, they stopped, looked back at a lady following them…..they called out to her gently to come to them, addressing her as their mother. She had a larger bundle on her head. The children were dressed in clean clothes, their hair combed neatly. The place they had chosen to halt was near a wall that had an advertisement for a school on it. I hope and pray that they get a good education and lady luck smiles on them. They were hard working, cheerful and did not run across the highway………
