From Canon Ann Easter,Assistant Curate & Chaplain to the Queen.
My five year old grandson, Milo’s, favourite toy of the moment is a snakes and ladders game – he loves it! – and this is a child who has all the usual electronic gear and the racing car set and everything.
But, as we’ve heard in the news this week, that is certainly not the lot of some children in this first world country, who live below the poverty line, with no warm coat or shoes and sometimes no wholesome food.
But what to do, short of asking pertinent questions of those who would govern us and looking for opportunities to help with the appropriate charities? They say it takes two to make a baby but the whole community to raise it!
Soon after my third child, Dominic, was born his first few weeks were very calm and sunny, but soon his older sister and brother went back to school and one morning, after dropping them off, I took the baby to do the week’s shopping.
I hadn’t got as far as the vegetables when he started to cry, that awful mewling pitiful wail of the hungry newborn. I started to rush round, throwing things into the trolley panicking as the yells got louder. I felt the disapproval of the other shoppers.
Then a lady said to me ‘can I hold him for your dear?’. She did, and of course he stopped crying and they gooed and chuckled at each other as I gratefully finished my shopping.
I don’t suppose that that lady went home and told how she’s saved two lives that morning – but she had, and sometimes a little practical help or a bit of encouragement makes all the difference, especially to parents who are far away from their own families.
So now, when I’m out and about, I’m a willing holder for a yelling baby- but glad to give them back.
