"It pains me to be quiet when my heart wants to speak..."
I have learned that it is very difficult to be sure of what it is that I actually want in life because my mind is always changing as I am growing. I do find it a small triumph however, that I now know of a few things that I do not want or need and I have been able to stand my ground with those decisions.
Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.
Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.
