It's The Thought That Counts

In a day and age that is filled with materialism and selfishness, I was delighted to see my daughter take the initiative (without any involvement from an adult) and create a thoughtful gift for a classmate who was having a birthday.

Earlier this week the kids were getting ready for school and Emma presented the shoe box below which she had spent time creating in her room. As you can tell she put a lot of time and effort into finding common household items to create a miniature room complete with a welcome mat, a bed with pillows, her friends favorite book, a cute little throw rug, a clock on the wall, and many other creative touches.

I'm sure that her friend received plenty of gifts for her birthday, but I'll bet this shoebox will be the gift she remembers most.
