Yesterday my sparrow was found. By another teacher in another classroom.
Yesterday Etienne hugged me. A real hug around my neck on his own initiation. Etienne crashes into me, he pushes me away or he climbs on me but I don't remember the time he willingly touched me because he
wanted to touch me. Just for touch, for contact. I didn't realize until he had his arms around my neck how much I needed this.
I consider the found sparrow and the hug to be a gift. Like a hallmark card of encouragement. So, so thankful for these.
PS Thank you for the comments here, the texts, the prayers, the emails. God used you in big ways to bless me this week.
