She counts the coins over and over again.
It would barely be enough to purchase meaningful grocery.
‘Dear Lord, where will the next meal for the babies come from?’ She wonders in despair.
Hearing a shuffle of feet and a rap on the door.
She rises wearily to check who it is, but there is no one at the door, just a little note wedged into the space under the door, with a 50 dollar bill nicely folded inside.
