I Am So Proud

of my kids! Friday night we were at Relay for Life. Grace and Olivia spent a long time selling refreshments. They stayed longer than I did! They were polite and eager to help.

Then on Saturday the kids from church, including my Tribe of Five, went to an area nursing home. They sang a couple of songs and passed out gift bags to the residents. They loved it, probably more than the residents did!

I plan to seek out a whole lot more opportunities for my children to serve others. What a gift it is to me to watch them bring joy to others! And to love doing it!

Wonderful! A servant's heart is one of the best gifts you can give to your children.
