YOU (South Africa) - - SAY -

MY FAVOURITE part of YOU has al­ways been read­ing your read­ers’ let­ters, so I thought why not give it a shot? I hope this ten­der mo­ment warms your heart as it did mine. To­day I sat down with my two daugh­ters, aged four and six, dread­ing hav­ing to ex­plain to them that we have to move out of our four-bed­room house and into a two-bed­room apart­ment for a lit­tle while un­til I can find an­other job that pays well.

My daugh­ters looked at each other for a mo­ment. Then my younger daugh­ter turned to me and asked, “Are we all mov­ing into the apart­ment to­gether, Mommy?” “Yes,” I replied. “Oh, so no big deal then,” she said.

It dawned on me that even if all we have is one an­other, that’s good enough for me – and seem­ingly for my girls too! S JOOSTE, EMAIL
