Some Hugs for you


This is the first snowman that I have found this year. I think the temps. have been way too cool for the little ones to build their sweet snow people. I usually see the most snowpeople in the spring snows.
Do you read http://comesitbymyfire.blogspot.com by Reyln. She had such a cute post yesterday titled "The way children teach". Hop on over and read her story. She is a teacher with a child with Down"s Syndrom. It was so touching. It reminded me of something that happened to me this week. I hadn't even thought about posting it. Here is the story......

After releasing my early morning SACC kids (School age child care), I wait for the busses to unload. My granddaughter gets off one of those busses every morning and I give her some kisses and a big hug. I was talking to her and four afternoon SACC kids walk up. Two are twins that live in my neighborhood and ones that I have watched in my home. They hug me every time I see them. Another one is a friend of my granddaughter. My younger granddaughter calls one of her dollies this little girls full name, so cute. Okay, the last one is this sweet boy. I can't say that about most of the boys in our program. He walks up and shows me that he has lost his first tooth. They are all standing around me so I say, Let's have a group hug." They all giggle and we stand there in a circle hugging each other. What a great way to start a morning.
Thanks Reyln for sparking me to write this post. (((((HUGS))))) to all of you from the bottom of my heart.

You are certainly surrounded with children there Debby, lucky you I know you love it too. We don't have any in our lives anymore. Our grandsons are grown up and not in this town anyway. I just sent my soon to be 18 year old grandson a Valentine package. Still make things for him, he understands it's fun for me lol...Take care and have a great weekend. No new snow here ever though they predicted it. It's warm at 33 degrees this am.

There is nothing like children for pure, sweet, tender love. Great post. I'm so glad you shared this story. Hugs right back to you.

I am a substitute teacher, and the best part of the job is the kids! Whenever I am out, I seem to bump into one of my students and it is such a joy when they come give me a hug. Working with kids is hard work, but it's times like yours when it's certainly worth it!

Hi Debby,

Because of problems with someone who reads my blog I've had to change my url address.
