It's what we do.
Because we don't want them to see us weepy. We need them to see us smiling as they leave for the day.
I sent white light and healing and blessings and love to the entire school district and basically the whole world today.
I texted my sister-in-law who teaches first grade, and has four of her own kids, this morning.
I think back to when my kids were in elementary school and I remain grateful the people they were surrounded by loved them. The same holds true for middle school. And now that they are in high school, I know the same STILL holds true.
The people I know in education do it for the love of the kids. No matter what department they are in. Bless them. Appreciate them. THANK them. Because, like us, I suspect they will be smiling. That's what they want our kids to see...even if they are choking back their own tears.
This song seemed appropriate this morning.
