A gift I’ve been given
to invest in ways that will matter.
A visit here.
A greeting there.
A touch of care in a world that becomes more impersonal with time.
Open my eyes, I pray, to see
to really see the needs all around me.
It is all too easy to look and not see.
To be so focused on my own agenda
rather than noticing the heavy burden another is bearing.
Children all around excited about school beginning
Teachers anticipating that first day
looking for support.
I feel their hearts. Many years as a first grade teacher has made me sensitive
to the needs of teachers, students and parents.
Coaching is another way
to reach out to people
to teach skills that will make all the difference
from having just another year
to having a ‘wow’ year.
Spread the word
let me know.
A gift we have been given.
Don’t settle for less.
No, reach for the stars.
Give it your all.
You can be much more than you think you can!!!
