When I was a little girl, my mother had a stock saying for those times I would complain about, well, anything.
“I used to cry because I had no shoes, until I met a man who had no feet.”
My heart goes out to the people in Japan who have no shoes, no heat, no homes, and some who are giving their very lives so that others may be safe.
And on this Finding Something Friday, I found folks who are trying to help. So on Monday, March 21st, look for me here, at the Kidlit4Japan Benefit Auction.
I never seem to win the big prizes at these auctions, but I promise I won’t complain. Not even a sigh. My mom has a stock saying for this situation, too:
“The Lord loves a cheerful giver.”
