anyone thirsty on this hot summer day? well, i have just the cure for your dry, parched mouth……
i happen to know 5 very cute, entreprenurial girls selling lemonade (“lemolade” if your name is kawena) right on our street.
in fact, they set up “shop” right in front of our house….
don’t they look excited and eager to sell you their sweet, delicious, thirst-quenching lemolade??
how could you pass up these sweet faces?
as they were setting up, their first customers arrived before the girls were even ready. you should have seen how quick they were to provide their product with a smile and a “have a great day!” that first customer blew a lot of wind in their “sales” and they were ready and determined to make a fortune!
the heat of the day didn’t even deflate their spirits! it was nothing a piece of ice couldn’t cool…
at the end of the 2 hour work day, they did pretty well! $10 was the take home (divided by 5) and the girls couldn’t have been more thrilled! i was so grateful for wonderful, generous people, for example….
- the girl who had a handful of quarters (at least 10 or more) and said, “this is all i have.” and handed them all to the girls
- the lady who said, “now, how many of you are there? one, two, three, four, five.” and handed over a quarter for each girl
- the numerous people who gave a dollar for a cup
what made me even happier was the example of these people that taught my daughter to be generous, too.
just now, a neighbor was just out walking her dog and had no money. so, kale’a came to me and whispered in my ear, “can we just give her a cup for free?” of course, i said that was a wonderful idea. after the lady left with her dog kale’a said, “mom, i want to have my own lemonade stand where the lemonade is all free. that way more people will stop to get some.”
thanks all you generous lemonade buyers for teaching my daughter to be generous!
as i type this, my three are at it again selling more lemonade. so, if you are in the area, stop by for service with a smile and the most refreshing cup of lemolade you have ever tasted!
