How beautiful a day can be, when kindness touches it! ~ George Elliston
How rich a feeling...someone sharing a kind word.
How rich a feeling...someone letting you know that what you did matters.
I had been so nervous...and people had been so kind. I had no need to be nervous.
I must say that I was absolutely floored when I opened my mail just now. Talk about kindness...
The kind people at The Math Forum had already been so kind way back when I first posted my video. At that time, they tweeted that my wee video "made their day". And then they wrote to say that they would send a care package. I wasn't prepared for the initial tweet, never mind the parcel that arrived...
You can't imagine my excitement opening this parcel and finding a whole ton of Math Forum goodies inside!
The best part of the whole parcel?
A photograph of the Math Forum team...with a note to me and signed by each of them individually! Wow! That someone was so kind as to take the time to do that for me...wow! Now, this is indeed a treasure!
So, I will send them a tweet as soon as I post.I am writing this blog entry in hopes that they learn just how much their acts of kindness meant to me.
Truly kind and encouraging people.
Reading of their mission, I shouldn't be surprised - even though, I was delightfully so! The Math Forum has fostered many others, teachers and students, to help them "find their mathematical voice".
To the wonderful folks at The Math Forum: Thank you for your support, your encouragement and helping me find my voice...AND for your delightful care package! How wonderfully caring of you all to send the love from The Math Forum all the way up here to the cold and wintery Peg in Manitoba! From the bottom of my heart, thank you!
And should my students find answers for 83 and 88 for the 2013 Year game, I will share them right away!
