“Do what you love and love what you do.”
It is no secret...
Teachers do not teach for the money.
Teachers teach because they love what they do.
And every once in a while,
a student shows up with a sweet surprise.
My friend who teachers right next door to my classroom received this fresh flower arrangement from one of her senior girls this week.
She shared the handwritten note with me...
And then we both had to dry our eyes.
Elementary students bring gifts to their teachers all the time.
High school students...not so much...
So when a note, or small token of appreciation is received, we know it is from their heart.
I have saved the letters and notes I have received from my students.
This one was from a special young woman who graduated in 2009.
I bring out the envelope and re-read the notes every once in a while.
This is now a time when high school and college graduates all over the countryside are making decisions about jobs and careers.
(My two sweethearts, included.)
Think about how you want to spend your day...
Every day...All day...
Find something that you are passionate about...
Be excited to get out of bed in the morning...
Listen to you head...and follow your heart...
"Find something you love to do, and you'll never work a day in your life"
