Flowers, ten cents

Mia set up a flower stand outside my Grandmother's house and attempted to sell flowers cut from the backyard for a mere ten cents.

All proceeds were to benefit the children from The Village of Hope in Ghana.

Personally, I thought it was quite a bargain.

Apparently no one else did.  She didn't sell a single flower.

If you were one of the five people that drove past this precious little child trying to help orphans ten cents at a time, I hope you can live with yourself.
(I'm not bitter.)
I'll admit she wasn't exactly dressed for success.
But still...
