My little friend Jesus that I met 3 years ago in Panajachel, Guatemala is still around, selling his hand-embroidered postcards and assorted bracelets.
I love seeing his sweet smile and hearing his stories of what he’s been doing. He works very hard each day to make enough money to go to school – and he LOVES school! We invited him to join us for breakfast each day we were there, at least getting one hot meal in his belly for those days.
This year I bought a bundle of woven bracelets from him and went around the table, making sure each of us had one firmly secured on our wrists. When I returned to my seat, he tied one on my wrist – where it still is at this very moment. I haven’t removed it and have no intention of doing so. I hope it lasts all year until I see him again!
I find that it matches beautifully with everything!
