Happy Friday! We made it to the end of the week, YAY!!!
I ran across this beautiful video today that I thought your heart would appreciate. There’ve been so many tragedies around the world lately from the Boston Marathon, to the factory collapse in Bangladesh that killed over a thousand, to back here, in Oklahoma, with the recent tornado devastation. Sometimes it seems like the world is on this crazy spiral. It’s easy to feel helpless and wonder “What can I really do?” I love this video because it shows the power of one act of kindness. It’s filmed on the busy roads of Russia. Don’t let the beginning credits in Russian throw you. The video is beautiful.
Have a beautiful weekend, friends!

Suzanne Winter from Winter Wonderings Wonderings & Whatnot contacted me yesterday to share a wonderful opportunity to help out the many in Oklahoma who’ve been displaced by the recent tornado devastation.
This is what Suzanne wrote:
I am helping organize a philanthropic endeavor in conjunction with Green Style Creations and Pattern Revolution.We will be donating a hand made item (or more) to those in need in OK. Angelyn Benett of Green Style Creations lives in the area and had family living in the town that was hit the worst, so she is the ‘feet on the ground’. All donations will be sent to her so that she can take them directly to the places with the most need.
We don’t always have the opportunity to help others when tragedy occurs. I’m excited about this opportunity to give something handmade from the heart that I’m sure will be greatly appreciated.
For more information about free pattern donations and how you can participate, visit Pattern Revolution for the full announcement. This collaboration runs from May 21 – June 21.
Motivation Mondays is a weekly series posted at www.motivationmondays.org. I talk from a Christian perspective about my past struggles as well as triumphs in the hope that just as others have helped me along the way, my readers will find something beneficial to carry along with them throughout their week. I believe that community is important as well as honesty and transparency.Want to chat? Send me an email: littlekidsgrow (a) gmail (dot) com. My welcome mat is always at the door.
There is so much sewing going on this spring and summer! Here’s another great opportunity to stretch those sewing skills (and even make something for yourself )
