We all suffer ups and downs in life. There are times in life that are just hard, and it’s something that Tawny Nelson, a mother of 4, knows well.
When Tawny’s ex left the family, life became especially challenging for the mother. The mother of four beautiful children suddenly found herself alone with her daughters, ages 9, 5, 2 and 6 weeks.
Needless to say, it was not an easy task to raise the four girls, and in addition, the family’s car made trouble, which made it very difficult for Tawny to get from place to place.
“The situation was just bad. More than I can ever explain”, Tawny wrote on Facebook.
Tawny tried to avoid using the car as much as possible, because of the many problems the car suffered from.
“There was a flat tire and I had to fill air all the time. The driver’s window did not work. I needed a new alternator belt. We did not drive anywhere unless we had to”, she wrote on Facebook.
But on one rainy day, she had to go to the supermarket to buy groceries for the house.
She took the four girls and drove to a store 9 blocks away. By the time she arrived, it was already dark and heavy rain flooded the streets.
The situation changed from bad to worse, as her daughters began to break down.
“My 5 year old started to fall apart, my baby was screaming, my 2 year old was crying because she was hungry, and the older one was somehow trying to help me. I cried and felt like the worst mother in the world”, she wrote.
But just as everything was about to collapse, Tawny heard a knock on the window – there stood an elderly man with lameness.
