No, Mrs Dawson, I can’t afford to buy them this time.

I don’t have enough money, but thanks for asking Jesus, I’m sorry to hear that Mary. But don’t worry this too shall pass someday said Mrs Dawson, as she took off with the other women.

Why did you leave us like this? Peter was Mary’s late husband who died six months earlier on his way home from the factory he worked. The family was already struggling and Peter’s salary contributed significantly to making ends meet after his untimely death. Mary was pushed to the extreme of Misfortune and had to fight her best to raise her children. Her sorrow doubled when she had to quit.

Waitressing due to health issues. She focused on her household and her savings were completely drained. Tears streamed down Mary’s face as she blamed fate for how things turned out in her life. Then a faint voice interrupted her from behind Mama school starts in two days and we haven’t bought anything yet said Simon. Will we go shopping at least today, Mary didn’t know what to say: sweetheart I’ll try to do something but Mom you told us the same thing last week and we were given a whole list of items to take to art class.

What do we do now? We have two days left added Melissa, the more her children questioned her, the more Mary felt hurt and lost honey. I said I’ll do something she said again, but Simon and Melissa were disappointed. They mumbled and walked away certain their mom would still do nothing. Mary was crushed and decided to do something she wiped away her tears and picked up her phone, giving it her last shot by calling someone she knew for help: hey Salma Hi.

How are you she asked? Salma was a friend she had waitressed with six months ago. I’M good Mary, how are you I’m glad to hear from you after a long time? So how is everything? Did you find a new job?

Not really. I shouldn’t have quit that job, but I had no choice because I had to attend. Peter’S funeral and my health was deteriorating. His parents already had problems with me and I didn’t want them to criticize me again. Yeah, you told me about your in-laws.

Did they visit you after that? No, what can I expect? They were already angry with me for marrying their son against their wishes, and now that he’s gone they’re constantly, accusing me saying I took him away from them. Mary felt a little light talking to her friend, although her main motive behind the call was to ask for some money. However, she decided against it and just hung up after their casual conversation.

At that point, Mary had no idea who else to ask Mom Dad. I know you’re watching me struggle from Heaven. Your grandchildren need help with just basic school supplies and I’m not even able to afford them that much I’ve run out of savings. Please make some miracle happen. Mary cried looking up at the sky from her window shortly after she heard loud sirens and a couple of police cars stopped in front of her house.

Why are the cops here she shrieked hurrying outside to find out a weird feeling of fear and curiosity crawled into Mary’s nerves, as one of the officers got down from the car and approached her God, I hope nothing’s wrong. Why is she coming this way? Mary mumbled anxiously, Mrs Parker, yes officer. It’S me what happened? Your husband died six months ago right.
