It was the first day of school and this little angel’s mom couldn’t stay because she had to rush off to work. The look on her face captured my heart and I was lucky enough to have the camera on my phone ready to snap this picture. I don’t know what she was thinking about, watching all the other kids with a parent or grandparent helping them to get settled into the new space.
Just a few seconds after I took this the teacher assistant, Mr. Jose, came to her rescue and made sure she was feeling safe and comfortable in her new classroom. Within several minutes she was in the housekeeping play area making new friends.
Today’s thank you is for all the people who, on the first day of a new experience, saw that I might be feeling left out or unsure, and extended their kindness to me.
