Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Back To School


--by cyctw, posted Sep 3, 2021
Since returning to teaching (I enjoy it so much, calling it "work" doesn't seem fitting!), I've found myself super busy. This evening I have some reflection time. One thing that hasn't changed is that kids will be kids. Yes, they are super inspiring and continue to amaze me with their accomplishments and kindness...and many still don't pick up after themselves:(.

At school, I've had the opportunity to spread kindness by returning dirty dishes to the kitchen, picking up litter (why, oh why do we continue to use plastic?!), and trying to make students feel seen by being deliberate about greeting them as I pass by. Of course, I've had the opportunity to deliver, anonymously, four packages of tomatoes and
avocados.

What I am most excited about is a delivery that I get to make on Friday. A dear friend found an organization accepting donations for helping the soon to be here refugees from Afghanistan. They will need so much support when they arrive and I'm fortunate to be in a situation where I can be of service if even just a bit.

Oh, and the wife has been begging me to make a vegan key lime dessert that she has been craving. I told her I would make it, but probably not until this weekend. However, I surprised her and made the dessert last night<3. She was delightfully surprised! We'll say that puts me at 50 kind acts for my birthday. :).
