It’s often said, “Give people their flowers while they can still smell them.” Though I searched but couldn’t determine where the saying originated, I agree with it wholeheartedly and am thankful my husband does it often, not just on holidays. That said, I’m still enjoying my Mother’s Day bouquet. Be intentional about showing your appreciation to someone at home or work while the recipient can enjoy it!
As a former elementary and middle school teacher, I taught every grade K-8 except for 1st and 4th and then in the Infant Room up through School Age as a Center Director. Many of my students have gone on to become teachers and attribute that to the impact I and other educators had on their lives. It’s one of the most rewarding professions and one of the least recognized. Hope you’ll be intentional today or this week about expressing thanks to the teachers in your life and/or your children’s. Because to teach really is to touch lives forever.
