Now the friends hung around for about thirty minutes and then my other daughter and them left to play across the street. Shania hung in for a whole day and really didn't move from her seat. She was enthusiastic and energetic when her limited number of clients stopped to purchase her custom cup of powdered lemonade with a smile. And at the end of the whole process when she (and her mom sans friends) cleaned the mess, she sat and tallied the money…..
Then she did something completely surprising - She divided it equally amongst her sister and the friends that had contributed an almost insignificant amount of support and help. I was amazed at this demonstration of kindness and grace. Kind of reminds me of a parable that Jesus told one time to his friends.
At the end of the parable in Matthew 20, Jesus says, “So the last will be first, and the first will be last.”
I have so much to learn about life :)
