Being 12 was not fun when it came to Mother's day to buy a present. However, JoJo was very resourceful and created this beautiful shaved snow cone as a gift for me.
He took wood-shop in school and had some ideas on how to use wood. He took a small discarded piece of wood from school, and worked on shaving the woods into strips at home.
He then made the cone out of paper, and glued all of these curly strips together to create the look of a snow cone. While his big brother and sister could afford a better present, this one came from the heart of a child. Yes, it is now a treasure for me.
With coarse rice to eat, with water to drink, and my bended arm for a pillow - I have still joy in the midst of these things. Riches and honors acquired by unrighteousness are to me as a floating cloud.~~~Confucius~~~
