Sew Sweet

Jodi is a 2nd grader. She noticed that my Goldilocks puppet had a torn dress and offered to take it home to sew it. She brought it back the next day:

MR. BOWERS: Wow! Great job! Dd your mom help you?
JODI: No, sir.
MR. BOWERS:  Well, I bet she is super proud of you.
JODI:  I don't know.
MR. BOWERS: Didn't you show her?
JODI:  No, sir.

A week or so later Jodi came up to the music teacher and I offering to sell us some chocolate covered strawberries. Then she got out a little notebook and took our order. Then the music teacher asked her what she was raising money for--you know, was it for a club or something?

JODI:  Nah, I'm just helping raise money to give to my mom to help pay for rent. :(

We each contributed $5 and said a prayer for such a sweet, kind and loving student!

It is such a blessing to have that wee girl in your class and life. And, she is equally privileged to have you be a part of hers.
