STORY BEHIND THE PHOTO: Picture Praise, 3/1/10

As a nurse, I go up to small mountain villages giving disabled children physical therapy. I teach them and their families to do what they can rather than what they can’t do, to help with their daily activities. Together, we find tools and equipment in their local area. This picture was taken on Easter morning. We had just come back from the little church where there was lots of singing and celebration for “Resurrection Day.” We were treated to boiled eggs, chicken, rice and lots of sunflower seeds, even though there isn’t enough food to last through to the next harvest. I was very appreciative of all the labor it takes to get the firewood, get a bit of rice, cook it, and how none is wasted. photographer: Lynn T., RAC
