99-Year-Old Lady Sews A Dress A Day For Children In Need 

Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.

Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.

"Women are described in animal terms as pets, cows, sows, foxes, chicks, serpents, bitches, beavers, old bats, old hens, mother hens, pussycats, cats, cheetahs, bird-brains, and hare-brains…‘Mother Nature’ is raped, mastered, conquered, mined; her secrets are ‘penetrated,’ her ‘womb’ is to be put into the service of the ‘man of science.’ Virgin timber is felled, cut down; fertile soil is tilled, and land that lies ‘fallow’ is ‘barren,’ useless. The exploitation of nature and animals is justified by feminizing them; the exploitation of women is justified by naturalizing them."

(Warning: sappy post ahead)

The beau and I were always in a semi- long-distance relationship (30 minutes), until last August, when we moved in together.

I only saw him in small doses on the weekends, and so missing him was really a constant state. He also spent a summer abroad. I’ve missed this boy for longer than I’ve not missed him. But now, I’m home for four days, sleeping in my childhood bed, and I’m homesick for his warmth. I crave the ability to reach out and touch him, to feel his weight on the bed next to me. I miss him now more than I ever had before, but I’m so thankful and blessed that I get him all of the other days.
