I have often said that I am always learning new things from my children. Here is my most recent lesson.
The VBS Bella is going to offers the opportunity for the children to bring items, i.e. shampoo, conditioner, soap to give to children who have less.
The first day I sent Bella with a bar of soap. The next day I sent her with Shampoo that I had bought for that express purpose the night before. I don't know why I did not think to buy items for her to give for the rest of the week. As the nearest grocery store is more than 20 miles away. So the third day I was looking through all of our bathroom drawers and cabinets trying to find something she could take. I finally just grabbed another bar of soap and decided that would have to do.
On the way out the door I handed Bella the bar of soap. She looked up at me, a lack of understanding shown all over her face, and said, "We already give soap."
Lesson learned from my 3 year old. If you are going to give, give generously!
