Stories of Kindness from Around the World

The Power of Words

--by cabbage, posted Oct 1, 2009
I feel blessed to have found my "calling" in life, which is teaching and sharing my passion for science. I have profound gratitude towards all of my students for everything they have taught me. I feel honored and privileged to be a part of their lives, even if for a very short time.

I sometimes receive thoughtful cards, notes and gifts from former students, but this latest card made me smile for a very long time....

I just wanted to share the part that really touched me:

"Thank you for sharing your knowledge, passion, work ethic and especially life lessons. Your words were not lost on me!"

That just really really moved me.

Thank you to all of you who write little notes to your teachers - it means more than you know.
