As I was teaching Literacy this morning....these roses were delivered to my classroom. It was a surprise because Tommy and I agreed to wait until Saturday to celebrate. They were so beautiful! All the kids wanted to smell them and touch them. (Of course, their little noses must make contact with the rose for them to be able to actually smell the fragrance!)
One of my little boys said, "Man, you better remember to say thanks for those!" I had to smile because I frequently remind myself of that!
Lots to be thankful for....
