There is such a sweetness in the way that kids show their affection. Before leaving on break, I received an index card with a heartfelt thank you, a paper candle holder with a battery-powered candle, and a set of origami hearts affixed to a class note. I notice the warmth this generates deep inside my grinchly heart, and melt at the time and care they have taken to show their appreciation. It’s almost enough to make me forget the shoe someone tried to microwave. (Almost).
The day before break, if even a single child offers you a thank you, have a good break, or a small token of appreciation, see if you can let that sink into your soul.
Have a beautiful break, one and all.
