I’m happy for those lucky students, but yikes - panic mode for me! DeAnn, Beth, and Shannon go on a library search for me; thank you, dears! I email teachers, friends, the whole district, and I even check for cheaper, used copies on Amazon. Thank you all for your help and support! Within an hour, I have 6 books, but my resources are spent. So I post on Facebook “In dire need of copies of the book Boy in the Striped Pajamas. They will stay safe in my classroom and will be returned with a payment of chocolate. Thanks!”
Well, within 5 minutes a childhood friend I have not seen in 20+ years posts tracking information. She ordered 8 copies of the book to be delivered to my classroom! I immediately start bawling, thank her immensely, and get this response from her.
1) One of my favorite books; 2) You are amazing, and 3) You are most welcome. #Kindness counts and I’m considering it a deposit into the Karma Bank for the next time I’m a #$%& about something.
WOW! Kind and funny!
I will pay it forward, but would love to hear your kindness story!
