It’s a proud moment when we can share with our precious grandchildren the charity work we do. Today we took our 3 year old granddaughter, Henley, to the home of one of our families – Myesha, a 7 year Navy veteran, victim of domestic abuse and single mom of 5, including 2-year-old triplets. Henley brought with her two bags of beautiful clothes she had outgrown and lovingly pulled out one of her favorite dresses and handed it to 2-year-old Tiara.
In the car on the way home, I asked Henley how it made her feel when she gave her clothes to another child who didn’t have a daddy, many clothes or toys and even very much food. Without hesitation she proudly said, “It made me happy.”
We hope to have many more of these teachable moments with our little angels as we try to instill in them the joy of giving! Why not try this with your children or grandchildren? They’re never too young to think about others.
And, as always, please make a difference in the life of a child today.
