Sweet Dream In A Bag


          April 2014

                     Providing New Bedding, 
                            Caring & Love
                      to Children in Transition

A 4 year old boy was about to choose his Sweet Dream Bag at a Treasure Time Gifting Event--he  held out his hand with it full  of pennies and said "Here I want you to have these"  I told  him everything was free and he could put his  pennies back in his pocket.  He just looked at me and said "maybe you need some money!"  I told him I had a little in my purse and he finally was convinced that he didn't need to give me his pennies! -- What a caring and generous little boy!!!!!
