Back to Work

So, I helped with a back-to-school fair for kids last week where the children (if their parents signed them up) received school supplies, a backpack, shiny new shoes, haircuts, and vision checks. They got to climb on a school bus, fire engine, and cop cars and the children got to meet cool people who care about them.
Kids are awesome. I tried to convince a couple of kids that the image of Hannah Montana on the back of their backpacks was me. They weren’t convinced.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, children deserve a childhood (safe and full of love).
Summer vacation is over for me and I’m back at work today. I am blessed all over the place.
Here’s my prayer for you (and me). May we never take anything in our lives for granted.

  3. Children definitely deserve a childhood. Kids grow up too fast these days.
    I'll buy that you're Hannah Montana!

  8. I get to see the 50 or so kids I work with next week when school starts and I can't wait. I love their humor, smiles, excitement and energy. No matter how I'm feeling, they put things into perspective. Have a great week!

  9. I was looking for something like this for my nieces. With their parents unable to afford school supplies, this was much needed. I am glad those kids got what they needed.
