On my way to work this morning, I noticed a lemonade stand that was being set up by 3 little girls in the neighborhood.
I was taking my husband for a follow-up visit to the doctor and coming home, the girls were resting in the shade under their table from the heat of the afternoon.
Darrell and I stopped and although we didnt want a beverage, we wanted to support their efforts. We gave them a bit of money for their persistence and they politely thanked us for the gift.
I asked them how much they'd made that day, and their faces beamed as they exclaimed "almost $15!" I asked what they were going to do with their loot (half expecting to hear about a trip to the toy store - a response you would expect from 8 yr olds) but no... they said they were donating all their money to the animal shelter to help prevent cruelty to animals.
Funny how things like that will leave a mark on your heart. If those were my girls, I would be so proud of them!
And if they are out there tomorrow, I'm asking if I can take their photo to remember this act of kindness ♥ .
