Friday I volunteered in the garden all day at school. Thursday night when I came home from Ridge's concert I got a phone call asking me. It was going to be nice and they were having plants delivered at 9am. I didn't take Carly or I probably wouldn't have got much done.
We got a lot done Friday almost all the beds planted. A Huge Yay !!!! I pulled children from all different classes that had all there school work done. I usually had four students with me at all times.
Here is the sorta tricky part , my first class was Kindergarten. They were so cute and most of them had never done anything like that before. It was also sorta tough I have been thinking about the upcoming school year and how I should have a little boy starting school this year. I didn't cry but I thought about it when they were planting and watering. Then I thought of how blessed I am to be able to volunteer when I can. Get to see children from all ages and think of how there was a day I never thought I would be a Mother. The one little guy thanked me for taking him to the garden. My heart smiled and I sorta hid a tear as it fell down my cheek. I'm happy for the chance to help others and God you are so very good all the time. I know those trips to the garden may not mean a lot to some but to me they help me deal with my grief in knowing that I'm so much stronger because of you.
Here is a couple of my Kindergarten students. I will never forget these moments.
