What gets me through the day

Ageela is an eighth grader who talks so infrequently that when she does, it startles me because I don't recognize her voice. Today, the students had to write a thank you note to someone who has inspired them to be a leader. When we were leaving, she handed me this:

Just when you start to think that you aren't making a difference...


  1. I am so proud of you and so happy for Ageela that she has you in her life! You are making such a difference. Love you, Mom

  2. How precious!
    A.) That your Mom reads your blog ;)
    B.) Your student! Isn't it great when people thank you for something you didn't even know you were doing intentially?
    We rec'd a letter similar to this from a girl who is in ROTC with Eric. Our church does a live online service and we always link up to facebook and invite everyone to come to church with us. Last Easter, Bud was in the Easter production and a few cadets came to support him. After weeks of seeing our facebook links this girl started visiting church regularly and recently thanked us for being role models. Can I say my heart melted and tears ran down my cheeks because I didn't even know I was doing anything.
    Keep up the good work!

  3. I would have cried! What a wonderful wonderful way to end your day :)

  4. Wow! This got me all teary! What a wonderful note!

  5. Definitely brought tears to my eyes! That's so precious and touching. You really never know how much of an impact you have on others' lives until something like this happens.

  6. How sweet! I'm your newest follower.

  7. That is so awesome! That must be such a good feeling.


I love reading your comments - thanks for being a wonderful part of my blogging experience!
