“Little Mother”

"Little Mother" - Watercolor by Michele E. Struss.  Prints and notecards available at www.hispaintbrush.com.

The children of El Salvador hold a special place in my heart as I have visited their country about 20 times now to work with King’s Castle Ministries.  It is an amazing feeling to give of myself to these children…a feeling that can only be understood when experienced first hand.

Little Mother is a painting I began during one of my trips to El Salvador of a young girl who is caring for her little brother.  This is such a common sight there as many times the parent or guardian is working or simply absent as the kids are out in the streets and neighborhoods leaving children to take care of the children.  But in a culture where the kids are often the victims there is an inner strength that cannot go unnoticed as siblings show love and care that they themselves have many times not been shown.    It reminds me that we each have the power to overcome our past and change our future…as well as the futures of those around us.
