I found this incredibly moving. This sentence, which sums up the whole piece, really brought a lump to my throat:

During the week she was a maid, but on Sundays she was a fisherman.

Absolutely lovely.
Your description of the teacher, both physical and spiritual, is wonderful.
Great message and a good read.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this colourful story. Colourful description - colourful everything. Thanks it's a good read.
Well done. This is a very good story, and I love this line in particular: "During the week she was a maid, but on Sundays she was a fisherman."
May you also be a fisherman! Good story, thanks for sharing!
Beth, I've just re-discovered this wonderful bit of writing, and it's even better on a second read. I plan to feature it on the Front Page Showcase for the week of January 26. Look for it on the FaithWriters home page, and congratualtions!
