Dear Little One,
You are amazing.
Today you told the class a story of a little boy and a little girl who put on magical star-shaped glasses. When they put the glasses on, they became twinkle stars in the sky. Their mothers spent the day looking for them everywhere, but their children were nowhere to be found. That night the mothers looked into the sky and wished on a star that their children would return home. When the mothers made the wish, the little boy and girl became shooting stars. The fell back to Earth and landed in the arms of their mothers.
Little one, I am amazed at your ability to invent such a creative, magical, poignant story. As I click away at my own story this month, I am inspired by you.
I hope you heard me, really heard me, when I told you what an amazing storyteller you are. Just in case you didn’t, I’m going to tell you again tomorrow. And the next day. And the next day. And all the days after that.
And tonight when I look up at the stars and think about things I’m thankful for, you are going to be at the top of my list, Little Star Girl.
Love you bunches,
