Lil’ Biggest Fan . . . a lesson in gratitude
I’m a huge fan of our biggest fan – Lil’ Chickin LUKE. He’s ten years old and has more manners and gratitude than I’ve seen in a month of Sunday’s around my coop.
His family lives on a farm near Savannah, GA and they raise goats, chickens and rabbits. He discovered Chickin Feed at the Georgia Organics Conference in February where he spied our Primer. He decided that he really wanted a copy for his family and instead of beg, plead and whine in front of his mother (sadly this tactic probably would have worked on me) he must have asked his mom and she told him to save his money and he could buy it. So, last month after saving up his $18.00 – his mother placed the order online.
When we receive an online order, our automated email reply asks folks where they found out about Chickin Feed, because I’m nosey that way. So Luke’s mother told me the story about the Conference. I was so impressed that a ten year old boy saved his money for our book that I sent him some freebies in the package.
Last week I received an envelope in the mail full of lovely gratitudes from Lil’ Chickin Luke! Some colored pictures he printed from the FARM GRUB pages of our website and a great magnet of Lil’ Chickin that he made (it’s hanging on my fridge) as well as a lovely Thank You note. I loved sharing it with my two kids and really appreciated the opportunity to talk about Gratitude!
What a Healthy Habit little Luke has inspired in our coop! Thank you.
