She had to feed her kids

Written in response to Six word story prompt: Motivation by Shweta

My helper tells these lines so often. She has a back pain and I was telling her to take rest for a few days. She is scared that she will lose her job in the houses she is working for now. Her husband is a drunkard and she is the sole bread earner. If even two houses ask her to stop coming, it will be difficult for her to feed her kids and provide the basics.

    1. Many stories like this. Our old help also had the problem with her son. He was a drunkard. Even at 75 she worked.
      I feel for them though, but glad that they are bold enough to tackle the situation for their own sake and their kids sake.
