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.
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.
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".
