The second was Romi.
At Mama Tara’s there are workers and helpers that aid the 80-something Mama Tara. One is Romi. She came to the orphanage with her 4 children because it’s the only way they would be fed, so she works in order for that to happen. And from what I observed, she works hard. She cooks, cleans, helped us paint the bars on the windows, she’s still nursing her youngest and has 3 others, while assisting the other 30 something kids there. She has nothing. She has been robbed upwards of 3 times of everything and yet still marches on. The last day I was there I pulled her aside and asked (well motioned) would she like my shoes? Her face just lit up and she cried. These were my “old pair”, as I have 2 others at home an as you can see I had a backup, I felt guilty. She beamed non-stop and repeatedly thanked me. I hope these shoes supernaturally last many more miles through her hard efforts. I will never take my running shoes or any shoes for granted again and I will think and pray for her as I put them on.
