THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IN THE VILLAGE

 

In a remote village in Zambia, Africa, a hut caught fire one day. The mother was away drawing water when it happened.  Her baby was inside the hut.  In spite of the fire, the mother ran into the hut and rescued the baby.  In the process the mother’s face and arms were badly burned and disfigured.  In the ensuing years the mother did not talk about that painful experience.  When her daughter was a teenager, her friends made fun of her mother’s face, calling her the ugliest woman in the village. The daughter came home in tears and told her mother what the other teenagers were saying.  The mother told her daughter the story about the fire.  The daughter, with new eyes and understanding, embraced her mother in sheer gratitude.  Later she announced to her friends, “My mother is the most beautiful woman in the village.”
