through the hardest of things, he stands by my side always. and, even when i can’t see the good things anymore, he sees them for me. i could have never imagined the kind of love that could exist in this world. the rugged, raw, tear-stained, brave, stand by you through the battle kind of love. i am in awe of this type of love and i love you, ryan. you love with a vulnerability that scares me and makes me brave.
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.
