Years ago I was a preschool teacher.
I had a little girl named Happy in my class.
She was a very sweet little girl, but not
the "easiest" child.
The time came for class changes and I was
more than happy to pass Happy on to another
Years later, I regretted that decision.
I could have been such a blessing to that
child. I am sure she would have been the same
Easiest is not always best.
It's just, well, easier.
Lately, my family has been unbelievably blessed by every day angels. Amazing men and women that seek out children that are often overlooked, ignored or forgotten.
Our swim team is the underdog team. Think Mr. Miyagi and Daniel Son in the Karate Kid. The ones that have just begun to fight and learn. Being the underdog is certainly not a bad thing. But it is so much easier to work with the winners.
In life, everyone loves a winner. Of course, winning is wonderful! I am asking you to please not forget those who are overly challenged. Pray for the people that frustrate you, try your patience and puzzle you. They may look "normal" but inside they are drowning.
Every day angels. We can all be one. Helping raise someone's confidence is a blessing to everyone involved.
Start with children. But don't stop there! We all crave praise and want to please. Take a second to say a kind word to someone. Hold your tongue when someone takes longer than you like. It will mean way more than you know. I know this for a fact.
Thank you in advance. You are all angels in my book. Rock stars, in fact.
Taking the easy road is easy but predictable.
Movies are not made about easy and
Root for the underdog and watch them become
the hero of their own story.:)
