As the cashier bagged my groceries, she asked who all the pretty flowers were for.
“We love our teachers. It’s something happy to share with them,” I replied without much thought.
I’m glad she asked.
The truth is — we share a whole lot with them.
We trust them with our babies. We trust them with our hearts.
How is this possible? How can I say with confidence that I can trust and love some of these people I’ve just barely met.
Because I know a teacher’s heart.
A teacher doesn’t just do a job.
A teacher makes a difference.
A teacher deserves respect, recognition, encouragement and all our prayers as they help our littles become who God intends them to be.
It’s no small thing.
So, I’m not waiting until teacher appreciation week to spoil our teachers.
I’m starting today. Please join me.
