One hundred years from now,
It won't matter what car I drove,
What kind of house I lived in,
How much I had in my bank account,
Nor what my clothes looked like;
But, the world may be a little better
Because I was important in the life of a child.
I love this "poem"/thought. We know we'll never be rich monetarily, in this field, but oh, watching a child take steps forward in their development is so worth it! We had an excellent week today. I had a FULL house on Friday. There was a completely different set of dynamics and it went so wonderfully well! (Not that I wasn't tired...but it was a pleasant tired). And to hear those conversations, the peer teaching and the obvious steps forward in development "made my day" and reminded me...this is what I'm in this field for. Hope you all have days like I had that remind us about the important things in life...like being important in the life of a child.
Here's another "thought" for you!
The ABC's of Children
Be with them!
Delight with them!
Learn from them!
Fly with them!
Believe in them!
Laugh with them!
