Last year my daughter got the flu and missed the week of school before Christmas break – which meant almost a month of not seeing her friends.
She was so sad.
I was on campus to drop something off and decided to pop into her classroom to ask a few of her friends to wish her merry Christmas and get well soon, which I’d record on my phone for her.
When one of her friends heard my idea, she yelled for everyone to come help. Nearly the whole class joined in, including the teacher, cheering and smiling, creating a video that made my kid’s day/ week / Christmas. She watched it a hundred times, smiling from ear to ear during each viewing.
Still brings a tear to my eye when I think about it.
