Last Friday, I came into work running late (as usual), grumpy (pretty typical for 7:30 AM), and hungry because I forgot to grab breakfast before leaving the house. This was not a good combo for a day of me + 22 rowdy ten year olds.
I walked into my classroom and walked to my desk to find this waiting for me...
My very dear friend and co-teacher must have known that it was going to be "one of those days" and she was able to turn it all around with a chicken biscuit from Chick-Fil-A. Two years ago I was working at a school where I didn't have a single colleague I could call a friend. I felt like a loner, and overall I was pretty miserable. I am so glad that that's not the case anymore!
It's the little things like this that make so happy. I am so thankful to work with people who brighten my day with simple gestures like this one!
