Yesterday was the end of a long week. It was actually a short week where I live because Monday was a holiday but you know how those short weeks go – they are always so long!!
We had parent teacher conferences for two days and I am part of a committee that is planning a multicultural festival for next week so I had been working on a passport for our school. Then, of course, it was also Valentine’s Day and all the festivities that go with that.
So, when Friday hit I was spent. I decided since I had some money left of my Starbucks card, I was going to treat myself. So, I went to Starbucks through the drive thru and ordered not only a latte but breakfast and lunch too!
As I pulled up to pay, the lady kindly told me that the lady in front of me had paid for my order. The whole thing! Holy smokes! I asked her if the lady had known how much it cost and she smiled and said “yes”. Wow. Just Wow.
I am always looking for ways to spread the kindness and have paid for coffees and given homeless people a meal but I felt particularly good about this one as I immediately felt like I could take on the day. That’s a great feeling! When someone is kind, kindness definitely grows. It’s RAK week. I love that we have a week like that because it spreads kindness but I am a firm believer in doing things daily for others and I teach that in my class.
As I pondered this lovely act of kindness from this morning. I thought about something that I could do. I don’t always set out to do something – I wait for it to come to me and it always does.
Then I thought about teachers – you all. I thought of all of the teachers in my life. I think most teachers do random acts of kindness every single day at school. We are always giving ourselves for the good of our students.
So, I decided that one way I wanted to give back was by giving away a $25 gift certificate to my TPT shop to make another teacher’s life easier.
