When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that last blow that did it, but all that had gone before.-Jacob A. Riis
Success and failure. We think of them as opposites, but they're really not. They're companions - the hero and the sidekick. Laurence Shames
The strongest warriors are these two...time and patience.Leo Tolstoy
Kaish has always had a hard time at school- even in Kindergarten. It has been very frustrating for us. This year he is in 3rd grade and he is truly doing an excellent job!
He works hard on his homework every night. He likes his regular teacher and his special education teacher. He hasn't gotten in any trouble at all. A few days ago he came home with a praise note from another teacher in the school.
A little boy had fallen at recess (right in the beginning) and Kaishon gave up his whole recess to help the child go down to the Nurse. He then stayed to make sure the boy was OK. The child's teacher wrote a praise note for Kaishon. Kaish was SO excited. He was glowing when I picked him up for school.
That night at bedtime we were saying our prayers and he said, "I knew you could turn me into a better boy, Jesus, I just knew it." I am so proud of him I could just burst! Have your children done anything lately that made you that proud? : )
