29 Gifts, Day Five: Stars

May 5th, 2011


One of the things I’ve noticed about the 29 Gifts endeavor is that it really serves to motivate you to do those nice things you always mean to do, but don’t always make time for.  Like sending a card to a friend who needs a hug.

This is Teacher Appreciation Week at the kids’ school and we parents were asked to write notes about their teachers on these star cut-outs they sent home.  I confess that I am sometimes “that mom,” who neglects to complete the homework assignments that come home with her child.

But this time, I made the effort and spent ten minutes this morning, writing down some glowing praise about Buggie’s teachers (who are, in fact, quite wonderful).
