Thoughtful Gestures #sol19

I have the best colleagues.  Really, I do.  These folks, though, really are more than just the people I work with, but over the years, they’ve become dear friends.  We’ve laughed together, celebrated together, and cried together.  We’ve supported each other during the good times and the bad.

This morning, when I walked into my classroom, a vase with flowers sat on the table beside my computer.  G, probably one of my closest friends at school, had picked these from her garden as a “thank you” for helping her with a project.

While the flowers are beautiful, it’s the thought that meant so much to me.  It’s these kinds of gestures that are common at my school.  It doesn’t have to be flowers, but a handful of candy in someone’s box or a large iced tea from McDonald’s or a hug. If someone’s had a rough day, these gestures are common.  If someone has something to celebrate, this kind of gesture is a regular occurrence, for which I am always thankful!

    This is lovely – not just the flowers, of course, but also the gestures and the sentiment. We have another 6 weeks before school ends, and this inspires me to pass on a few smiles. Thanks!
