This morning, when I had to drop by the middle school FOR THE THIRD TIME THIS WEEK (time #1–he forgot his lunch; time # 2–I forgot to send hot lunch money with him; this time—I needed to drop payment by the office for wrestling) I was met with a smile by the school’s office secretary.
(Are they even still called secretaries? Maybe it is “administrative assistants” instead).
Anyway, I have noticed she is always so chipper and helpful and patient with both scatter-brained parents and squirrelly junior highers.
My son thinks so too. He referred to Mrs. K last night as one of the most “awesome” people at his new school.
I didn’t think I should keep that info to myself.
So, this morning when I made my trek in, I told her what he said about her.
She smiled big and said how very much she needed to hear that this morning and how it totally made her day.
Who in your (or your child’s) life is a constant bright spot?
A co-worker, neighbor, pastor, teacher, coach, youth worker, fellow carpool mom?
Today, I dare you to pause what you are doing and tell them so.
Ot better yet, drop them a hand-written note.
It will make their day too.
