This was on my desk yesterday morning when I returned from one of the bazillion things I did in and around the building before the kids arrived (also was late because I had to go to the grocery store to buy eggs so we could make brownies in class):
Inside were these two items:
‘Bookmarks!’ I exclaimed. ‘I needed new bookmarks. Thank you!’
So three thoughts: This mom listened when her son said he wanted to something for someone else. They worked on a plan together. And they did something together.
I got the best smile and the biggest hug from a little boy with a true heart for others. And that, Ladies and Gentlemen, is why I show up every day to teach kids. Just sayin’.
