Back to school
I was back at school today, and what a surprise! All of the students made cards for me, and they were displayed all around the library... on top of the bookcases and on some of the shelves. On my computer, I can click on the picture to enlarge it. The close-up shows better detail of how the cards were displayed and how many there were. I read every one... some made me laugh... some made me cry.
Two were especially poignant... a fifth grade girl whose father died when she was in kindergarten, and a fifth grade boy whose father died when he was in first grade wrote that they knew exactly how I felt, and that they knew my dad was in heaven watching over me. I had my father for about 50 more years than these two children did, yet they are comforting me. I am humbled.
