Something crazy special happened to me yesterday. I had planned to write about something else today, but this cannot be ignored.
I went to my school mailbox and there, among the usual stuff to put in kids' boxes, was a greeting card envelope. It was addressed to me. There was a stamp on it which was postmarked. I don't get many cards anymore. People send me email or texts; they don't even leave me voicemail messages much these days. So my heart was happy as I slid my finger along the edge and opened it up. This is what I saw
Inside were 5 gift cards for $50 EACH to stores where I often get supplies for my classroom. It was simply the most amazing kindness I have received in a very long time. The sentiment on the card inside read "Here's a little GOLD to help keep your classroom Treasure Chest filled to the brim." I can only assume that this lovely soul reads my blog and recently read this post: Treasure Chest. I am flabbergasted and honored and completely delighted. It feels like when I first found out I was pregnant with my now 9 year old son. I would walk around knowing I had a miraculous secret.
Thank you dear kind soul who understood and took the time to show me it matters more than you can say. These children I care for are gold.
