I am blessed with kids that talk to me. They even call me (or email me) during the school day with stories of their successes and non-successes. I was going to use the word “failures,” but these are not failures, they are hiccups and lessons: a grade lower than hoped for, a library book lost, an argument with a friend.
I just got a call from Matthew, now a high-school sophmore. He got a 99% on a quiz in AP Chemistry! Nearly the highest grade in the class! He was so thrilled, and I’m thrilled that I’m at the top of his list of people to share with.
Thank goodness for kids that talk!
