A domino effect...

Today both my posts have been a domino effect of others who blog...their posts have lead me to remember what's important NOW and to Thank those around you who deserve thanks and appreciation.
This watercolour is my little Ashley's Teacher's gift. We'll give it to her tomorrow.
I will, when I get around to it post it in my Etsy Shop as I will be selling 25 Limited Edition prints of it as I do with all the others.
I hope she likes it...they have a cat just like this and a daughter who resembles the girl hugging her cat.
It was a hard call to know what to do as a little "Thank you"...but seeing as funds are low...a little thanks from the bottom of our hearts is what she'll receive.
I remember when I was 5, I had the best and most dedicated Elementary Teacher ever. Her name was (she passed away just a couple of years ago) Mrs. May and her school was called "Apple Tree Cottage".We had to walk through her ever so manicured garden to get to a large shed at the very end of the garden. Inside were 2 class rooms and about 17 children ranging from 3-8 years old. I have some wonderful memories from her little School. She was strict, but such a master at engaging her students...
Our Ash has a teacher very similar to her...wonderful...just wonderful. Thank you Mrs.E.
What do you do for the Teachers in your Life?
