A mother is walking with her daughters across the busy parking lot; they are holding onto the hem of her skirt. Her arms are full of a half a dozen long cucumbers and she has cloth grocery bags over both her shoulders. The bags look heavy and she is moving slowly under the load. “Ma’am? Ma’am? Let me help you!” another woman calls to her. They exchange smiles and the mother lets one bag drop from her shoulder.
