When Small Hearts Make Ours Expand...Something to Hop to

When 5th grade students celebrate their orchestration of a book drive collecting 2,364 children's books for St. Anne's Center Homeless Shelter by making bracelets with beads from children in the Democratic Republic of the Congo who turn their drawings into beads to sell and raise tuition money for access to school it leaves a giant heartswell of seeing beautiful in its wake.

Congratulations to the students at Cheatham Elementary School for leading a charge full of giving and grace. And thank you to the children's faces I'll likely never see in the DR Congo who gave their drawings selflessly to raise their own money to attend school.

Today, we are overwhelmed with seeing beautiful in those smaller than us with hearts that make ours expand. Thank you.

We look forward to reading about the See Beautiful stories our fellow blog hoppers are sharing as well! As always, thanks for seeing beautiful with us!
