This One is Good, Folks

As most if not all of you are aware, I sell note cards for charitable causes as I am able, though I lack a proper marketing engine to do it very much. Mom has sold them from time to time at both church and at her school, George T. Cromwell Elementary. A couple weeks ago, right in the heart of my cancer ordeal, I got something that made it seem all worthwhile.

Apparently one of the third grade classes is currently learning about small businesses. Below you can view the product of one kid's "business." You can enlarge these images by clicking on them as usual.

Apparently Ronnie or Ronnie's partner's mother purchased some cards from my mom late last year. Ronnie remembered the card and remembered the idea of my card sales being a small business, even if only in the loosest sense, and created his own card company in class. He brought mom the card above (the 3 images are front/inside/back) to give to me when he learned I was going in for surgery. Is that not the neatest story? I think so.

That is touching. And who knows, perhaps some day he'll be a business mogal and owe it all to you. :) It's funny how things can happen that way.

I just showed this posting to the 3rd grade teacher who has Ronnie in her class. She was deeply touched by his card. God surely reveals himself to us in many and varied ways. Though you do not know Ronnie, he loves you and shares that love.

Those are great cards!

Yep, Ronnie is on the right track. Also, you're right Jon, and if that happens I will then go and demand back payment for the idea! HA HA HA!! No wait...
