Home away from home

She probably didn’t call Mamma the first time she spoke, she probably didn’t run to Mamma, sea was all she could see.At times she was awed by its vastness, most others she was lost at its loneliness.

The pain of parting she knew for the sea took away her dear ones for long periods of time.

An idea struck her then, why not build a home away from home for those sailors away from their loved ones. To this day, sailors come there not for the food she offers but for the smile she greets them with every time they come there.
