Yesterday at work I went to get one of my favorite little first grade speech kiddos.
As he sat down at the table with me he said, "Will you be my Valentine?"
He didn't even give me a chance to respond.
"I want everyone in the whole world to be my Valentine. Except the bad people."
Well how could I say no? I couldn't, of course. Most days I am really glad I get to work with kids. And it just takes one short interaction like this one to make up for those days when I'm not so glad.
