Amara really is a kind, generous and giving soul. She gave her trike to her friend’s little sister when she got her 2 wheeler. She gave her sandbox to her cousin when she outgrew it. She gave the little girl next door to us her old Sesame Street DVDs. She finds books she wants to give to her new little cousin. She enjoys going through her old clothes and packing a bag to take to Goodwill. Her Mom and Dad have really taught her well.
The other day one of her 2nd grade friends brought her lunch to school in a brown paper bag instead of buying it. Amara asked her where her lunch box was and she said she didn’t have one.
SO! Amara went home that day and asked her Mommy if she could give her friend one of her lunch boxes. Amara always takes her lunch and has an assortment of lunch boxes and wanted to share! Together they picked out one that didn’t have Amara’s name on it so that it wouldn’t seem like a hand-me-down and that Amara was certain she would like. She even showed it to her teacher, she was so excited about doing some thing special for someone else.
I have a very special granddaughter!
