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.
God bless her

The Little Mermaid
So I work at an elementary school as some of you know. a few weeks ago I saw a little gang of kids on the playground up to no good. they were all huddled up in a little circle and even had a “look out” for teachers. I managed to sneak up on them and catch them as I knew exactly what they were up to. When I surprised them and asked them what they were doing, they all panicked and immediately hid their “contraband,” which were some Pokemon cards. I told them I was cool I wasn’t going to snitch them out to the principal with the condition that they let me see the trades going on. For a good ten minutes I coached these kids in the art of trading pokemon cards as I had done so in my youth. It makes me happy to see pokemon alive and well in the younger demographics. I also learned that charizard is still at the top of everyone’s favorite pokemon list.
It’s all a matter of perspective
