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.
I know you don’t like to talk, but you gotta do it for her.

HE SAID MORE THAN HE DID ALL SEASON. I THOUGHT HE DIDN’T CARE. I THOUGHT HE WAS JUST BEING NICE AND LETTING HIS BABY MAMA SEE THE BABY THAT HE PROBABLY DIDN’T REALLY WANT AND BARELY LOOKED AFTER BUT I WAS FUCKING WRONG. I WAS WRONG ABOUT HIM. HE’S JUST QUIET. THE DUDE IS STOIC AS FUCK AND HE FUCKING LOVES MARIA AND HE LOVES THAT BABY AND IT’S FUCKING BEAUTIFUL THE WAY HE GUSHES AND TALKS TO HER LIKE MARIA ASKED HIM TO DO BECAUSE HE WANTS HER TO GROW UP SMART AND LOVED.
But also look at how cute the baby is dressed in each visit. Who did that? Daddy did. But that’s exactly the kind of visual cue that gets lost when he’s getting judged for his bald head, tattoos and stoic (thuggish?) demeanor.

lol my coworker ben made my day. all he did was ask me about how my first few days of working at panera have been. then when i told him my name, he said it was nice. i get compliments on my name all the time, but the way he said it was so weird yet good? it’s hard to explain LOL. and even after i said bye, he yelled “hope you have a good day!”
it’s such a small gesture but i appreciate him sooo much for talking to me first, especially after i basically ignored him LOL
actually.. i like talking to strangers because if i fuck up and make things weird, i’ll probably never see them again. unlike the buttholes who ostracized me during middle school and high school.
i feel like i’m a social butterfly now lol it’s weird because i’ve always struggled with getting comfortable just being around new people, but now it’s kind of easy (but still a little scary). within my first fifteen minutes of being on campus, i approached and befriended three random strangers and i’m proud of myself for that. then every time i see old classmates, i get really happy and friendly. i don’t just smile and wave anymore either! i actually talk to them about how they’re doing almost instinctively. i think it’s mostly because no one knows each other so i don’t think i’m interfering in cliques.
i know this isn’t a really big deal, but these small victories shot up my confidence so much.
my parents are super nice so they’re letting a friend of theirs stay with us until she gets back on her feet. but i caught her in the kitchen washing dishes???? with no gloves on???? and my dad let her????
so i basically kicked her out of the kitchen super kindly so she could relax, watch TFC, and go on Facebook like how guests are supposed to.
even though tita myrna probably feels like she owes us since we’re letting her stay, doesn’t mean that we should expect her to do anything. even if she insists. good hosts are supposed to be the super annoying ones who give you too much food to eat and let you lounge around not knowing what to do with yourself.
people r so dumb like what r u, communist????
she is a guest in our house and we should make her feel like one!!!
