Six – Twenty Eight – Seven
Now, it is true that Tess comes from pretty good stock. Her parents, Todd and Paige, have a heart for others. The Boyers are good nuts, but somewhere along the line, Jesus has lit a fire in little Tess’ heart that has a glow all its own.
Once Tess expressed a desire to help children at the end of the line, Grandma supplied the loops, and Tess went to work.
She made 28 custom potholders. She took orders for color and design, before selling them for $5 a piece. (At, GO Project, we really like the black and orange one.)
What did she do with her profits? Bought school uniforms for seven children in need. Fabulous!
We were kind of hoping Tess had found her call in life, would quit school herself, and just make these potholders seven days a week, 16 hours a day. Do you know how many pot holders we could sell? Who doesn’t need several of these?
Alas, Mom stepped in to spoil the fun with some story about Tess taking a little break from her work, finishing first grade, looking forward to summer, blah, blah, blah….we’ll let you know when Tess’ loom is open again for business :). Until then, we can simply be inspired by Tess to do all we are called to do for children in need.
