Recently I asked kids to write to me about a time when they were scared and how they overcame their fears. It’s amazing what a boost to the soul this can be. We all get frightened. We all find ways to overcome our fear and move forward. In my case, 50 miles a day for five days…to be exact. In the event that you are facing a difficult situation, read on for some wise advice. My words of encouragement are, ask for help when you need it. I was so heartened by these letters.
At one school, Katrise, pictured below, stayed in from recess to make this card for me. I cherish this card.
Here’s another wise letter (how do these kids get so wise?) If you have any thoughts to add, don’t keep them to yourself. Write me a letter. 1080 Knapp Street, NE Grand Rapids, MI 49505.
