I had to share this. It is probably the sweetest thing that has ever been done for me.
I volunteer @ a Christian school one day a week, I m a violence prevention specialist. I usually teach on Tuesday, yesterday was my b-day but I spent the day in bed. I have a stomach virus & the flu.
My hubby & I r sitting here watching the soaps wrapped up in blankets taken turns coughing. There is a knock on the door my hubby as answers it to tell me that there are some kids on the front deck for me. So I go to see what is going on. Standing there on my front deck is my church's German volunteer, the schools principal & mission year person, the 4 students that I'm working with this semester & sitting in the jeep my cousins(they went to the school to pick up their son - I live about almost 2 blocks from the school)
For cooking class today they baked me a birthday cake & @ dismissal time they all came to the house & on my front deck they sang Happy Birthday to me. I cried - this is the 2nd time in my life that I had a cake, 1st time since I was 12 yrs old. I also received a small rose bush.
It's amazing how such a simple thing can touch one so deeply.
