Slice of Life Challenge #21 Day 26: Delightful Surprise

Slice of Life Challenge #21 Day 26: Delightful Surprise

Last Monday morning I peered into my wooden mailbox slot in the school office. I noticed a small envelope with my name on it. 

I could barely wait to see what was inside and opened it before I even got to my classroom door. To my surprise, it was an encouraging note and sticker from a friend/colleague. Smiling to myself, I hugged the note and sticker close to my chest. 


Sometimes the smallest gestures make a huge difference.

  1. Small surprises certainly are the best. And there's something so wonderful about the unexpected. Hoping life sends many more small surprises your way.

  2. Yes, “sometimes the smallest gestures make a huge difference.” Back in the day my department would put small care baskets together for those in our department who were experiencing a rough patch. It’s the little things, right?

  3. One year at school staff wrote notes of encouragement to one another during PD - telling each other something we admired. It was so meaningful that we put a basket of cards and pens in the lounge, to keep the encouragement going. This is so sweet, Trina - as are you; your bright spirit shines in all your words, encouraging anyone who reads them!

  4. Oh how I love a small gesture like this! And you've helped me identify one thing I'm actually looking forward to about being back in the building: getting to leave notes in my colleagues' boxes!
