I think that we should celebrate unabashed good news more often.
So today’s thread and comments section is only for good news, things that made you smile, things that brightened your day sometime in the past week.
Last week at a parent-teacher training event, my son’s teacher was describing how a student in her class finally had everything click. This student had been struggling with a core concept for the entire year but all of a sudden, the student put everything together and practiced all of the skills that had eluded him for months and was able to do something that had been frustrating the living crap out of him. And at the end, he Dabbed in celebration.
I was fairly certain she was referring to my son.
When I went up to talk with her after the training event, I was 80% sure it was my son. She saw me, smiled and even before I asked, said she had been referring to him.
And my eyes glistened and I was smiling as I know he had been struggling with that concept all year. And the discussion we had about him Dabbing in school made way more sense now that I had the concept.
As soon as I picked him from childcare, I told him how proud I was of him.
That is my good thing of the week….
What about yours?
