A Friend in Need

This is Ivy. She goes to my Daughter, Autumn's School. From what I hear, she is a really sweet and well-liked young Lady.
Ivy's Family Home burned to the ground this week and was a total loss. She said all of her baby pictures are gone, along with everything else they had. She had one outfit and two pairs of shorts after the fire. They are staying in a hotel. The school is taking up donations for the family and will no doubt help tremendously. Please pray for their Family as they try to get back on their feet.
Here is the news story:

My sweet girl called me today to ask if we could give some money, along with some other Families, to buy Ivy a new Ipod. They were trying to come up with something that would make her smile again, and she loves music, so that was their decision.
I am so proud of this girl and the other girls who have shown a great deal of kindness and compassion for their classmate and friend.

I always wonder if I am doing a good job raising my kids to be well-rounded, caring, compassionate and giving individuals. It is not easy, but when I see them showing these qualities on their own, it really makes me feel like I am doing my job!


Have a wonderful day!
