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.
The world needs more good people like this.
In a way? This wonderful woman will if she meets her goal before her birthday will have 1,000 surrogate grand daughters. I find her generosity inspiring and I can only hope it makes others want to get up and do something for their own communities or for communities abroad. What a remarkable woman.
Starlite, you dick.
I laughed so hard right now I think I woke up the neighbors. Damn you Starlite!!
In RP over at mlpnwrp.com Scarlet had an unexpected surprise in her home. A hatchling griffon who’s coat and feathers was as white as snow was left to her. The poor boy had no one who could claim him and Scarlet took it upon herself to fill the most important role in this young griffons life… that of his mother.

The most important question is now:
Was that a lost bet.
Vexin trying her own limits of control.
Or an especially cruel attempt on her life?!
((In Response To:
Vexin: “Must… Not… Eat… Self… Oooohhhh….” *drooling chocolate milk as she speaks*
If that’s dark chocolate I might be tempted to eat her out…
I mean what?
There are no magic words that will always work that can make him forgive you.
The best you can do right now as I advise is to reach out to him and express sincerely your thoughts on what happened, to apologize for your part in what caused the break up, do not shift focus or blame onto him no matter how tempting. If you catch yourself saying the words “But you…” just stop, and most importantly? Be willing to let it go after this and tell him you will even if it will be hard.
If the phone/internet is the only way you two have remaining to communicate and he had not responded to your attempt to reach out to him? It may be time to consider that he is just not ready or willing to start up a relationship with you again. For whatever reason of your separation maybe its for the best.
At this point there is not a whole lot you can do unless you can meet the person face to face. If your communication with him has become (or perhaps has always been) through a digital medium? Then send him one last message. Consider everything and why your relationship had broken apart. Try to consider what happened on his side of things. Write or leave a voice mail expressing how you feel about being separated but do not fall into the trap of speaking about only your needs and wants. Tell him what you see has caused that separation and be willing to take partially some of the blame if it’s true… Unless he has lied/manipulated or been abusive to you then stay FAR away from him.
I’m afraid there are no easy answers to this. You know your relationship with him better than any of us… Really explore your feelings. If you feel it is worth it then leave him that message and don’t forget to speak about what you’ve seen to be his side of things. Show empathy and understanding for why he might want to separate because even if he still decides not to reconnect with you? At least you can walk away knowing you said all there could be said and left on better terms than on the day you both did break up.
