Martin Luther King, Jr. for giving me goosebumps every time I hear his speech
sheets fresh from the dryer
cold Saturday mornings perfect for writing in bed
my Words With Friends friends
frigid bike rides followed by scalding hot showers
one of my little girls, who on finding out we were getting yet another new student, said “We are the luckiest class-we always get new friends!”, I’ve welcomed three new kids into our class within a week. I’m going to try hard to have the same perspective as the little girl and think about how lucky I am to spend time with these new little ones.
the little girl in my class who, after writing pages and pages of a story, proclaimed, “Mrs. McCauley, I wrote lots of Golden Lines.” Yes you did, little one, yes you did.
We’re a rag-tag group of people vigilantly pursuing self-sustaining educational & employment opportunities with and for students and their families living in rural communities in developing countries. We believe in asking hard questions like, “What do you need and how can we help?” We believe that communities know their needs better than we do and that it’s our job to listen. We’re big on being kind for the sake of kindness and we believe that even the smallest acts of kindness can make a big difference. We believe in keeping vigil over one another and watching for opportunities to help, no matter how far off the beaten path those opportunities take us. We’re vigilant in our belief that God has given each person unique gifts and that one of the highest forms of worship is using those gifts to serve others. We believe God has a purpose for each life and Vigilante Kindness is our purpose. Join us as we live out wild adventures in service of God and others. Join us in committing acts of Vigilante Kindness.
