E's Little Business

Unbeknown to us, E started a little business just over a month ago.

She has been selling custom made pencil toppers to her friends at school. She asks them what character or design they would like, takes the order and creates them at home. She came up with the price (50 cents) all by herself.

She has also decided that half of her money would go to the Alberta Children's hospital.

A very close friend of ours, has been there for quite some time with their daughter.

Over the last week or two I have been helping her crazy glue her creations for final delivery.

Last night, I saw my daughter through different eyes. She is such a caring and compassionate little girl. "it can't be easy for "A" up in Calgary. It must be really hard for her to be away from her family and friends. And it must be really hard to see "little E" struggle. I want to help!"

It may not be a large donation, but boy is her heart in the right place. We talked about how her money would not only help little E, but other children who do not have the health that she is so blessed with.

It was one of those moments that reminded me how blessed I am to have these sweet spirits in our home.

Love those creations! I have some of her first ones on my dresser, not pencil toppers though! A flamingo, a hamburger and a puffer fish. Great job Miss Em :)
