My 8 year old daughter, Carlese was so excited this week. She told me her principal sat at her special milk free and peanut free table. I could tell by her enthusiasm she felt thrilled about this event. Instead of feeling "different," she felt privileged.
I don't know if her principal knew what kind of an impact it would have on her, but his action in sitting at her table is something she will always remember.
If there is something you can do to put a smile on someone's face today or make someone feel special in some way, please take the time to do it. You don't know what kind of impact your act of kindness could have on another person today, or what it will mean to them in the future.
When they are having a tough day, they just might recall your kindness to mind to bring a smile to their face. And we all need a little more to smile about, don't you think?
And maybe, just maybe...that someone will walk a little taller and be a little stronger because of your taking the time to do something out of the ordinary. I know Carlese is.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart to her principal, Mr. Hurlburt, for his act of goodwill.
Stay well, stay safe, and be brave.
