SAVING HAITI ONE BEAD AT A TIME/TEMPTATION MONDAYS





SAVING HAITI one bead at a time is what this precisous little girl named ANNIE is doing! When I visited her moms site this past week I knew what I wanted my next Temptation Mondays post to feature. Isn't she just beautiful inside and out. I had to share this with all of you.






I pasted this paragraph and pictures from Libbies site The Middlest Sister..

When I told Annie about all that is going on in Haiti...I will never forget the horror on her face. She said, "Mom we have to go there no matter how far away it is & help."
When I explained that we can't go there but we could help in other ways she said, "Let's give them ALL our money and send Dad to work tomorrow to make more money for us."
That is when I said, "Annie, we can't give away ALL our money, but, if you had money you could give it to them. Maybe you could make something to sell."
When she got home from Kindergarten at noon she worked for 6 hours stright making bracelettes. I could not believe how hard she worked!



These bracelets are beautiful and if you have been wondering like me how can I help the devastated people of this country then be sure and visit Libbies sweet little Annie.
Annie honey I am so proud of you and your hard work will save a little girl and boy!
Thank you for being my special guest this week....and God Bless You Sweetie from the bottom of my heart.






Remember if you want to be listed on my Temptation Mondays be sure and send me an email with a link to your site and pictures of what you want to have on here.

Love to all of you

Maggie


PS: For all of you who have been wanting to see the ole farm house that I live in I posted pictures of it in the post before this one.  Thanks to all of you who left me sweet comments about the house. It is great in the summer but you freeze in it in the winter. lol

Maggie...since my old laptop took a dirt nap, I don't have your email address anymore. Can you sling me an email so I will have your address to send my Temptation Monday picture to? Thanks sweet one!

p.s. That little Annie is a cutie pie!

What a sweet heart precious little Annie has. If she is so willing to work so hard for people she does not know at the young age of five, just think of all God has in store for this one.

Have a restful evening Maggie, filled with blessed rest and sweet dreams.

Libbie said...

Maggie!!! You are so sweet to post about Annie! Your bracelets are here & ready to be shipped tomorrow morning! I can hardly wait to put them in the mail!

That warms my heart, what a wonderful little girl! The world could use a few million Annie's. Thank you for sharing this amazing story.

Love and hugs,

Such a sweet story. Children have the purist sweet thoughts and often cut right through the fluff. In the NewYork Times there is sweet story of a little girl who talked her parents into selling their mansion for a small place so they could feed a hungry man she saw begging on the street.

We all have too much STUFF.

Sares said...

What a sweetheart! Little kids have such generous spirits about them. I am sure her Dad was thrilled with the thought of all his hard earned $ being spent for him though!

What a sweet-faced, good-hearted, little doll of a girl! She just exudes joy, doesn't she?

I'm looking for your e-mail, but can't find it for Temptation Mondays! I have a couple of things on my Etsy I was going to send you, but I'll wait until I hear back. If I miss this one, no worries, you'll just catch me next time. :-)

Have a great week!
Anne

That is ADORABLE!!! She's learning early how to be a great steward and give of herself ~ time, talent, and treasure are all important. Thanks for posting that for us - love it! ♥

Arkansas Patti said...

What an adorable, sweet child. I love how she volunteered Dad to go get more money.
She is a true treasure.

Auntie Cake said...

So sweet to see my "Cupcake" up there! She has been working like a madwoman on those bracelets. And to Arkansas Patti, we volunteer her dad for EVERYTHING!!! If you only knew...

Maggie,
That is so wonderful of you to do a special posting about Annie! Isn't she just the biggest doll????
Libbie has to be sooo proud of her. Her smile is just infectious. I want to go through the computer screen and give her a big hug! I love the pictures of her going to the houses "alone" as she said in her little boots and coat. There needs to be more quality kids like her in this world, but she's that way because her parents are the example for her. Way to go Libbie!!
Maggie, I love your cute pink house. It's way too adorable. I guess your little kitty is in heaven living there. Speaking of your kitty, I loved the story about the game you play with him. I can see, I mean smell, why he ran out on you the other day! That's too funny!!
Take it easy. By the way how's your willpower?? Had any good ice cream cones lately???????? :)
See you soon!!
XoXo
Gail
