|Our first customer was a dad and his little son|
We were very blessed as the weather was with us. After several rainy days today although it was pretty cold in the morning the sun came out and by noon it was very pleasant. Our very first customer was a father and his little son about 2 years old. Kostin was so excited showing him his old Elmo book. It was so beautiful to see the children running the sale. Asher was practicing his counting to create change for folks. Even my husband who was a little nervous about holding a tag sale felt is was well worth it and a big success. Our sale was small and often folks would pull over take a quick look at what we had and drive away. A serious tag sale shopper showed up and looking at what we had said: "is this it? This is the smallest tag sale I have ever seen." This actually made me very happy to hear this as I could feel the Little Way of St. Therese in this whole project. We had very humble aspirations and had no idea if anyone would want anything. Indeed our sale was small and missing the exciting treasures. Yet it was Our Lord's work as we were trying to further His Kingdom by helping the Children's Rosary. We felt silly for sure many times but more and more we felt joy.

I hope many of you might consider such a tag sale. Many are finding times financially challenging right now so it is hard to give. Yet through prayer Our Lord shows us how much we have despite such hard times. If anyone is able to donate we would be so very appreciative. There is a donate button on the side column of this website. Donations can also be made out to Children's Rosary Inc and mailed to:
