An Unexpected Gift

On Sunday, one of the angelic 3 year olds in my class gave me a flower.  I was delightfully surprised at her gift.  She painstakingly picked out just the right colors and worked hard to paint the flower.  I was especially taken by the beautiful purple…(along with the other colors streaking through it.)  Purple is my favorite color; it also happens to be the favorite of about half of my3 year old girls.  And the pink, green and blue allows it to blend into some other nick-knacks I have and love.

Flower for me

I have receive gifts from my children before and I am always thankful for whatever they bought or made for me.  But there is something that just shouts love when you receive a hand made item from someone when you least expect it.  I am so blessed to be able to teach such thoughtful children.
