The giving heart of a child


Just wanted to share what sweet big sis did the other day. My kids each have blank book lists that they can fill up and earn $5. Big sis filled her first list (with really big girl books...chapter books like Magic Tree House and American Girl books). I paid her about 2 days after our yard sale, so the big jar of change was sitting in the middle of our kitchen table. I paid her and she took about 2 steps and put the whole five dollar bill in the "adoption jar". I was confused so I took it back out and said, "no, baby...that's not yard sale money, this is your reading money." She took it from my hands and placed it right back in the jar, "I know, I want this to be adoption money."

What a sweet, giving spirit she has!
