GOOD MORNING ANGELS (PETRO/CENTURION GOLF LADIES/SUSTERS FILM) 


BACKGROUND: 

 

Petro is the single mother of four daughters. 


The eldest two are 22 and 21 - both studying to ensure a future of their own. The youngest two are 16 and 15 and in high school.


Petro works from seven to seven, seven days a week to provide for her children. Even this is not enough. 


She has sold just about everything of value in her home, to make sure that her eldest two, have all they need.


21-year old Colleen - a fourth year law student - wrote to Good Morning Angels about her selfless mom. 


Colleen is a hard worker, with her university and res fees paid by bursaries she earned with excellent marks.


Colleen however says her mom sold her valuables, including her washing machine to make sure that she has all else she needs.


It breaks Colleen’s heart to know that her mom does all the laundry by hand - especially has she has very painful arthritis.


Colleen asked Good Morning Angels help her mom with a new washing machine.

ORIGINAL REQUEST:

 

Liewe Jacaranda

Ek is een van vier dogters en ek is tans besig met my finale jaar op universiteit.


My ma het nog altyd haar kinders se drome bo haar eie gesit en verseker dat ons elkeen 'n blink toekoms het  - al is dit tenkoste van haarself.

In my eerste paar jaar het ek studeer op 'n beurs en ek was dankbaar daarvoor - tog was dit nie genoeg vir handboeke en daardie klas van dinge nie -  tog het my ma altyd 'n plan gemaak. 

Sy’t tot so ver gegaan om al haar goed in die huis te verkoop om te verseker dat ek nie my kop in skaamte hoef te sak in die koshuis nie.

My ma het haar wasmasjien, TV, los meubels ens alles verkoop om vir ons te sorg.

Die probleem is, sy het so jaar en 'n bietjie terug artiritis in haar hande ontwikkel en sy was steeds wasgoed met die hand. Ek is ongelukkig nie altyd daar om haar te help met dit nie en dit breek my hart om te sien in watse pyn sy is. 

As daar êrens 'n engel is wat haar  - wat nooit niks van niemand vra nie - kan bless met 'n wasmasjien, sal dit werklik waar soveel meer beteken as wat enige iemand ooit sal weet.

 

Groete,

Colleen
