The Story Behind Today's Gift
Teresa lost her husband in the war. He didn’t die on a battlefield, but he was a casualty of war all the same. Now Teresa has to figure out how to raise three little girls all by herself. When he was alive, she could concentrate on being a mom and a wife. But now she has to be so much more. Teresa wears a brave face for the world – she‘s a strong woman. But behind closed doors, it’s hard. It’s so very, very hard.
Her little sister mourns too and marvels at Teresa’s strength. She knows that her Big Sister will figure out how to be a single parent and how to go on living, despite a broken heart. She knows that her Big Sister will do what needs to be done so that those little girls are raised right and become strong women too.
Nevertheless, a little token of courage and love would not go amiss. Just a reminder for Teresa that she can do this impossible thing. She is strong enough. She will survive. She will thrive.
