"What makes me happy is the appreciation of people around me."
-- Nadia Comaneci
Every day when I go to the school where I’m volunteering, I have to sign in and out in the main office. Well, next to the sign in book, I noticed something really interesting this past week and the other day I got permission to blog about it.
You know how, during the December holiday season, there are all sorts of fun activities for students and teachers? Like: gift exchanges, bringing in special holiday treats to share with colleagues, handing out cards to staff members, wishing everyone Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and Happy Chanukah, and so on?
I always gave tins of Danish Butter Cookies to the custodial staff, to thank them for all the work they did cleaning my room and the school in general. I figured that was something all the custodians could enjoy and a large tin would last a more than just one day.
