On Friday, at the end of our end of week Gratitude Circle I thanked the children for being so lovely, patient and loving last week. They knew I was a bit sad and they were very caring and I feel that it's important to acknowledge these things with them. Then one of my girls (the same one who came over to give me a hug on Tuesday) said, "Tez, I think I speak on behalf of everyone when I want to say thank you for coming in to school on Tuesday to be with us when you weren't feeling so happy. You still taught us really well and cared about us even when you were sad. So thanks." Wow.
