I sometimes wonder why some people are more susceptible to hardships than others. Why some are more prone to fall victims of misfortunes. Why someone’s life is made so hard on him/her than others that the going gets tough and the tough gets going. And the string of misfortunes  in one’s life sometimes seems not to cease only to prosper. My maid is an orphan, poor without a home,  illiterate, divorced by a drug addict & abusive husband, and has a child who is crippled by polio.

Couldn’t God be a wee bit generous while distributing his blessings to her? Or is it a coincident that she wound up in  unfortunate circumstance. Did she do something awful to deserve such bashing?  Would she be able to turn the things around for her?
