Sometimes it is the simple and thoughtful things that mean the most to us. Here is an example of two of those things.
This is a birthday card and $5 that my aunt, uncle and cousins sent to Daniel for his birthday. It really touched my heart. Because of Daniel's disability, there isn't much interaction with other people. Also, because they live out of state, they haven't seen Daniel in many years.
This is a picture of a former student of mine. I had her when she was in 2nd grade. She is now a senior in high school. She is a very sweet person. On the back she wrote these words: "Thanks for all your teaching, nurturing, and love in my time off need." She came into my class just after her mother had passed away and her dad had remarried.
These are some things that have really touched my heart lately. What has touched yours?
