{Day 33}

Red for reading.  Green for language.  Pink for math.  Sitting tapping my feet under the table to a random beat I check another circle.  Right, right, oops wrong.  At work I am grading tests.  Considering that I am quite relaxed I feel almost guilty as I mark off the score for another student who may or may not have been feeling like that test was the longest hours they had spent all year.  Some students do well and there isn’t much ink from my pens bleeding onto the pencil smudged paper.  Others do miserably and then I see a page of confetti like dots.  I used to take those tests and I *greatly* disliked them, but looking back now I am grateful for the opportunity that I had to have an education.  I was able to learn, grow, and develop my mind.  My parents cared about infusing knowledge into me.  Orphans don’t have this opportunity.  Yet the orphans who are cared for by Warm Blankets Orphan Care do have the privilege of learning.  They are sent to private school in order for them to get an education that will be meaningful to their future lives.  When you donate today you are giving an orphan the opportunity to learn more than just pain, suffering, and survival skills.

    Neat dress! Somehow it reminds me of taking a pleasure ride on a cruise in the sea….

    Well said. Knowledge is a gift, and we too often take it for granted. Keep up the good work!
