The Way to a Girl's Heart

Remember when you were little and you would carefully hand select assorted flowers and weeds and then present them to your mom like they were a diamond necklace?

Well, today one of my students spent his recess carefully sifting through the weeds on the playground.

Then he said, "Happy Saint Patrick Miss Allen," and he proudly gave me this:


It's the sweetest bouquet a boy has ever given me.

Diamonds are so overrated.

Rebecca...just hopped over here from your leaving a comment on Compassion Family. I love your heart for children and the poor. I wish I could get to know you in person!

I'll be praying for your surgery later this week.

@Jill- Thank you so much for your prayers, I really appreciate them! And yes, I have met some great people through the internet world, wish there was a way we could all hang out in real life! I look forward to getting to know you better, even if it is just in the blogosphere :)
