Sweet Kids

Ran a fever all weekend and have been out sick the past two days.

I hate, hate, hate to be out, but I was not in any condition to teach this week. Students had a big Black History Month project due tonight (by midnight), and they have been emailing me their submissions all day.

Two standouts that really made me smile:

L: Mrs. S----, here's my project. I really missed you today and hope you'll be back tomorrow!

J: Mrs. S----, here's my project. I hope you are having a good day!

I realize that neither of these will seem like much to most people, but when you are feeling pretty pitiful, and you get 130+ messages that just say, "My project is attached," or "I need your help with ____," the fact that two of those kids took a second to say something nice really makes a difference.

It also makes me realize I should be taking more time to slow down and do these small kindnesses for other people, too. You really never know what little thing you do that makes someone's day.
