He handed me a piece of mail that wasn’t actually a bill. We both didn’t know who it was from yet he said, “maybe this will cheer you up.” I grunted and came out from under my covers and said “I hope it contains my future.”
Inside was a small note from the mother of the boy I work with at the JCC. It was short and stated how it’s only been a week and a half and she’s already has seen so much progress with her son and how grateful she was to have found me. I got a little emotional and looked up at him and told him it was my future on a small piece of paper.
This is what I want to do, I want to make a difference in as many children’s lives as I can. I want to help the parents who feel everything is impossible. I’ve always found my happiness through the happiness of others. After one week I’ve already made progress with a 6 year old boy who had no sense of self control and complete regression in everything he’s done in school. He’s a wonderful kid, and I couldn’t be more proud of him.
And here I thought I was struggling with him.
