It never ceases to amaze me how the power of a child’s pure love to fix almost anything.  After a rough day, I was sitting in my chair, trying to calm the class after reading buddies.  As I sat there, thinking about what to say to quiet them quickly, Will came up and showed me a heart he was making with his hands.

I’d never seen him, or any other sprouts do this.  Will talks fast, and before I could open my mouth to comment, he blurted out, “See this, it’s a heart, a heart for you because I really love you Mr. ______.”

“I love you too Will,” I replied as he hugged me.

Now that was just what I needed.  Ahhhhhhh.
