As a teacher and in ministry, one of my joys is when a student returns to say thank you and share with me about their success. I received a message yesterday from a former student who has graduated from college. She was in two of my English Second Language courses. I also met with her at my church to help her with college prep.
Her message was:
“I feel like the days I learned in your class were many many years ago. haha I was in a difficult time back then, but your class was always fun and you gave me a hope to keep learning. I’m really appreciate you. You are a wonderful teacher”
I received her message after I finished teaching online for the day and was beginning to get a headache- A Fibromyalgia headache- as in maybe a signal a flare up was coming. It was a blessing to receive her note.
The reason I am sharing it is because during this time of COVID-19 crisis, the little things like a message can mean so much. My hope is that my readers will see this post and decide to send a message, a note, or a card to someone to encourage them.
One of my favorite quotes is from Mother Teresa:
“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”
Let’s do small things with love.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
