Strange photo I know, but I love it. I took it one afternoon while sitting on a mat with a family in Malawi, chatting about their future. It was a lovely time getting to know Jackson, his wife Prisca and their children. But as I looked at Prisca's feet and mine I couldn't help but think of the differences between our lives. The many miles she walked just to fetch water, tend the garden, and look after her children compared to the pampered life I and my un-callused feet have enjoyed. Lots of differences between us, that's for sure. Can't help but admire her and all the women in Malawi. Gives a whole new understanding to the strength of woman and mothers. Yep. Powerful women. The children in Malawi are in good hands.
