"when she reds book's"

miss c

When my son was in kindergarten he had a very special teacher who received a Stage 4 ovarian cancer diagnosis early in the school year. To encourage Miss C, I helped the kids put together a very special album. Each student was asked a number of questions about Miss C, some of which included:

  • What do you like most about Miss C?
  • What have you learned from Miss C?
  • What advice do you have for Miss C as she recovers? (They knew she'd just had surgery.)
I hadn't thought much about my son's answers until today, when he came home with this:

the book

You see, Miss C recently lost her valiant battle with cancer. And because reading was so important to her, she'd asked that all of her books be distributed to former students.

My son being one.

It seemed especially bittersweet after recalling what he'd written in her scrapbook so long ago:
Q: What do you like most about Miss C?
A: When she reds book's
I'm so thankful for this tangible reminder of Miss C.

And am sure someday my son will be, too.

Don't you wish you could remember all those great litle things they have said and done and written over the years? What a wonderful book you put together for her Tina, I am sure that she loved it so much. Very very thoughtful.
