Sharing our Strength
On a recent trip to Dallas, Texas, I was driving down the street when I saw a sight that made me smile. Two girls stood on a corner holding a handmade sign on poster board. They yelled at my passing car the words hand-written on that sign: “BAKE SALE!” Their sign indicated their bake sale was for a charitable cause. Getting involved at a young age to help make a difference in the world around them- these girls were getting a head start on what it means to live lives of generosity and with eyes wide open.
I’m sure you’ve worked various odd jobs throughout your life.
Do you remember where you were when 9/11 happened? How about the Indonesia earthquake and the ensuing tsunami? Haiti? Chile? Japan?
See these beauties? They can be yours!
