No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. ~Aesop

I have to hand it to ancient Greek Aesop because he nailed it when he said the above. It’s true!
In my fourth grade class, some kids just don’t “get” math while others zoom through the lesson barely challenged. Math has never been my strength, so I try to be patient and extra encouraging to the children that struggle. It is so easy to get discouraged! When I arrived at work this morning there was a piece of blue paper with a heart balloon colored on it that read (and I quote),
“Thank you for being so nice about me geting stuff rong.”
God bless the little girl who wrote those sweet mispelled words that came straight from her heart! I'll tuck her thoughtful note deep into my ten-year-old-loving memory. Because of her, my day started with a BIG smile and a reminder of the power of kindness, no matter how small.

That is so sweet what that little girl wrote to you. I bet it melted your heart.
