This is what it’s truly all about.

Hello and happy Sunday to everyone.  As I mentioned briefly last week, tutoring  for the company that I  currently provide services for was preparing to shut down for the summer of 2012 .  Well everyone,  it ended this past Thursday.  On this last day of tutoring, I got a special surprise.   Picking one of my youngsters up to head to the library to complete our final session, he handed me this beautiful card.  Actually, there’s a picture of it directly above the words of this blog. I”m not sure if everyone can make the words out but,what the heck…I up-loaded it anyway.    

For those having complications with reading the card, the head of the family, “Grandma” stated the following, “We can never pay you for your help with Sylvester….have  a safe and happy summer.”  Reading this card made me instantly hold my head up with pride.  When you’ve been working with the youth a token of appreciation such as the one above is priceless.  Thanks “Grandma” for reminding me of why I do what I do.  This is what it’s truly all about.

    Adraly, you’re so right–the thing that makes it all worth while is simple appreciation and thanks–thanks for sharing such a nice post.

    What a thoughtful Grandma! You’ve reminded me that I need to stop and say “thank you” more often. Such a simple and easy thing to do, yet it means so much.

    Oh yes, it is so important to remember to say thank you especially to teachers, nurses and anybody working in human services. I have worked so hard some times and never know if anybody notices or cares that I took extra time and effort with their child. Thanks for sharing your thank you.

      Delinda, we do work so very hard. In-fact human service providers in my opinion not only work hard…we sacrifice so much and do it without giving a second thought. Thank you Delinda for sharing. Thank you for the hard work that you do. Kudos.
