day. made.

Today, at church, I received an envelope.

It was handed to me by one of the girls I get to teach every two weeks.  If I was a really good teacher, I'd know her exact age but . . . . . I know she is 8 or 9.

It was white.

In pencil was written my name.

I waited until I got in my car to open it.

It read:

Dear [Emz] here is $5.00 for the donation.  My Mom told me why you are running on a treadmill for a long time.  I hope you get enough money for the people.  P.S.  Sorry if I spelled your last name wrong.

She didn't sign her name.

What an amazing girl.

Who knows how long it took her to earn this $5.00.  Maybe it was one week.  Maybe it was two months.  Doesn't matter.

but. what. I. do.  know. is . . . . . this huge act of giving / act of kindness from this young girl . . . .

made. my. day.

And I know it will make every day "my day" until May 6th - - - because I have put it on my wall right next to my TV to see 5 out of 7 mornings at 5am.

Thank you "MP".

Wow! That is awesome!

And He said, "Truly I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all of them; for they all out of their surplus put into the offering; but she out of her poverty put in all that she had to live on." -Luke 21:3-4
