Heart of Gold

I already knew that I married the right man, but I have be reassured of that yet again.  Being a teacher you see just about everything, and it is hard sometime when you see sad stories.  Mostly you hear the stories, but when a student opens up to you personally, it's a whole different story.

These peanut butter & jelly sandwiches may not look like much to you, but they are part of the lunch that we are now packing for one of Jason's former students.  It absolutely broke my heart to hear the story of this young man that Jason taught last year and the struggles that he is dealing with.  At 18, life shouldn't be so hard and he shouldn't get only one meal a day.  So starting tonight, I am packing him a lunch along with the lunches I pack for Jason and myself.

The fact that Jason has bonded enough with this student that he is so completely honest with him reminds me that Jason is in the right field and although it's very stressful at times, teaching is absolutely the job for him!

Both Central and I are VERY lucky to have him!!!


  1. You are two of the most precious people I have ever met in my life. I don't think I've ever met a couple that is so caring and compassionate.

  2. That is the sweetest thing ever. You two are amazing.
