Still Grinning

Sorry, I’m traveling today, but I am still beaming from a comment by a reader, 8 year-old Max. While I appreciate all of my readers, I must admit, every time I’ve read this note I have gotten tears in my eyes. What a surprise and a delight!:) I’m on cloud nine. See you Wednesday!

    OMG how sweet! You must save this one. It’s a treasure.

    • Darlene,
      It just touched my heart in a big way! The screenshot of his comment is one of my new prized possessions. It’s the sort of thing that keeps one going when blocked (I just emailed you, on that point!). 🙂

    Ah, the praise from children you know is true praise. They do not pretend. Tears here as well…

    • Yes, this is what really moved me. The fact that he wanted to tell me about his reading experience was also heartwarming. 🙂

    • Thank you so much, Leya!! I appreciate this! I hope the students will enjoy reading them as well (Glory, if they find a typo, don’t tell me. Hehe.) 🙂 🙂
