A STORY ABOUT A SPONSORED MOM – YOU GET TO CHOOSE THE ENDING

Vilmae paused and sat back on her haunches. It was hot and steamy, not even a hint of a breeze. She wiped the sweat off her brow and looked behind her. The floor definitely looked better where she had scrubbed it. She sighed.

Although it was hot and grimy work, she knew that she was one of the more fortunate ones. Many of the other moms in her village only had dirt floors. At least she had something to scrub. She sighed again. They all needed a miracle. The whole village. She cared, but what could she possibly do to help? She had enough worries of her own.

Like Estefany, for instance. What kind of future could she give her beloved child? Would Estefany be reduced to this sort of life, too? It was hard enough for Luis just to find enough food for them all to eat. And now that the old horse had died, it would just get harder and harder. He had nothing now to help him plough.

‘Education?’ she muttered. ‘Impossible!’ She sighed again. It all seemed so hopeless. She had so many dreams for her child. She just didn’t know how to make them happen. ‘Please Lord,’ she whispered, ‘I give it all to You. You know my heart. But yet, not my will, but Yours be done…”

She was interrupted.

Estefany bounced in the open doorway. Her sweet face shone with excitement. “Hey, Mom! Guess what? I’ve been accepted for the sponsorship program! The teacher stopped me today and told me. I don’t know how, but they already have sponsors for us. See, here is my first letter. And there is something in here for you, too. Look! See that tag? It says, ‘Please give this to your mother with our love’. I know. My teacher told me,” she added triumphantly.

For the first time in a long while, Vilmae felt a strange emotion. At first she didn’t realise what it was.

Hope.

That’s what she felt.

Hope.

‘Thank you, Lord,’ she smiled softly as she wiped a tear away. Of the two of them, only she realised the full significance of what had just happened. She was sure her shoulders felt a ton lighter as she got up from her knees and hugged Estefany.

“Really?” she responded. “How wonderful!  Let me see it.”

and finally…

SOMETHING FOR YOU, THE READER, JUST FOR MOTHERS’ DAY; THIS TINY AND ENTHUSIASTIC MOM WILL WARM YOUR HEART… ENJOY!

A heart-warming short video about ‘Peeps’, a baby hummingbird who fell out of his nest and was then released back into the wild after being lovingly nursed back to health by humans. While he was in ‘hospital’, Peeps was taken outside each day to get nectar from flowers. As Peeps sits cupped in human hands, Mrs Hummingbird hovers anxiously nearby. The baby calls out to mama; the mother comes closer, and then… you won’t believe what happens next. No mother can resist the call of her child, no matter what the danger.

And when you write to your sponsored child, don’t forget…

  7. What a beautiful idea to include the moms, too. Psalm 100:2 is one of my favorite verses for encouragement and that’s a pretty little printable. The mama and baby bears coloring page sure is cute, too! (And thanks again for including some of my goodies in your list. That’s always a blessing!)
