  6. I live in India and I see street vendors almost everyday. Most of them have really difficult lives and I wonder how they get by with so little.
    What i like about your poem is the message that love alone can sustain us.
    "mothers
    always
    find a way."
    Beautiful lines.

  8. How true an observation that is - no matter how distasteful, a mother does what she has to do.

  9. Oh thank you all so much. I got to thinking about how women all over the world, often with so little, do the impossible and somehow provide for the needs of their children. When I saw the woman in this photo, my mind went immediately to that place:)
