    I had an experience in the fourth grade with a teacher who was not always so happy to be with a group of nine year olds. I took her behavior personally and went home and told my mother that my teacher really did not like me. After giving my mom some of the reasons that I believed this, she said the teacher probably didn’t feel very loved. The next day, in my innocence, I went to her, looked her in the eyes and said “Mrs. Smith, I love you”. She hugged me tight and said “I love you too”. She was never the same. That experience taught me a lesson that I have never forgotten and has been useful in many situations since….sometimes the person that you least want to express love to is the one who needs it most. A small sincere gesture of love can have a profound impact on a person who may not ever receive such a gesture if you don’t make it.

    • Kimberly,
      What a great story about how the power of Love transforms lives.
      Thank you for sharing.
