This morning, my one-year old insisted that he eat his breakfast, by himself and that he didn’t need my help.
It was messy.
It took longer.
His technique was poor.
He had fun.
He ate it all.

I am constantly amazed at the people and organizations that want me to faithfully send money each month but can’t take the time at least once in six weeks to send me a photo or three paragraphs describing the impact they are having. For many the improvement is being intentional about starting and just doing it.
Your impact is big. We want to celebrate with you.
