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.
And the lesson that Herman Munster was teaching Eddie brought a tear to my eye:
"The lesson I want you to learn is that it doesn’t matter what you look like. You could be tall or short, or fat or thin, or ugly, or handsome..like your father..or you can be black or yellow or white, it does not matter. What matters is the size of your heart, and the strength of your character."
Probably one of the best things I’ve ever heard.
