This week marks Teacher Appreciation Week and I didn’t want to miss my chance to tell Emma’s teacher thank you for all she has done this year for Emma. Emma likes school, but she doesn’t love it. She could take it or leave it most days. She would much rather be home with her family or create all day. Hmmm….sounds a little like me, eh? Her teacher is Mrs. Williams and she has been such a blessing this year to Emma and our family! She loves on Emma and brings out all the positive things about her and allows her to learn creatively while tapping into her interests. I seriously owe this woman. She is a stupendous teacher and Emma has really had an awesome year as a result. She has instilled fun into the learning process. What more could a parent ask? So…I wanted to send a little token of appreciation into her today to tell her how special she is to us. I was at some sales last weekend and there was not much to be found. I hit two church rummage sales and I think all of Wayne County had already been through that day. There was not much but junk left. I did find a stack of terracotta pots for a mere 50 cents. I had been looking for some so I was thrilled just to have found those. I think it panned out to be 8 cents a pot. Woo hoo! Some paint, pots and flowers and I created a simple, but very cute gift for the very best teacher around! I added the words plant and bloom as that is just what teachers do…plant seeds and watch them bloom!
Hope she likes them and know just how much she is loved! Thank you Lord for teachers that love on our children each and every day.
