A Load off her Mind


current time:

Esmeralda is living from hand to mouth these days. She used to keep extra money stored away secretly to use in a pinch, but last month her youngest son stole it. He had done bad things before, but this time she sent him out to find his own place to live. She was not hoping against hope, however, and discovered this when he turned over a new leaf. He found a place to live and a job and is now working to pay back the money he stole from her. That has been a load off her mind and even though she does not have much money she is much happier.
