Hope In A Jar

“Mom, what colors do you pick?”

“Um….   how about red, purple and turquoise.”

“Oh, that’ll be pretty.  I’ll see if I can layer the beads in this little jar.”  She makes a teensy funnel out of a scrap of paper.

 

“Okay!  The beads are in, and they stayed in separate layers! Look!  What do you want the label to say?”

“Well….  I’m not sure.  How about, “Faith, Hope, Love.”

 

 

“I like that.  I’ll have to write real tiny.”   She cuts a thin strip of paper, just long enough for three words.

 

“Oh, Jenny!  It’s beautiful!  Thank you.”

As she sorts beads for the next jar she asks,  “Where are you going to put it?”

“How about in a window where it can catch the sun?”

  1. …and Jenny writes pretty too!

    I’ve asked before and I’ll ask again: Is there ANYTHING she can’t do??

    Can’t wait to read about her widely varied artistic talent being hailed the world over. :)

  2. Donna,

    My wish: That every kid had such an ardent supporter. Imagine how the world would be then!
