I had been feeling ill all day, and by evening I was so ill I could barely stand straight. I tried eating something, but ended up throwing it all up. My head was aching so much I thought it might just burst.
And yet, there were chores I could not put off. Bathe the kids, pack their school lunches, fill the water, hang out the laundry. I was suffering, but had to do it.
“You lie down, Mamma, I’ll finish all your jobs”,
A woman’s work is never done. But after hearing those words, those chores got so much easier.
