This morning I saw one of my parents in the lobby of the school in tears. She was with our dean of students so I didn't say anything. Her daughter is challenging at times, we all have a team approach and she is still very strong willed and has a hard time in school. Mom is a traveling special ed teacher for high schoolers as a side note. I didn't know what happened but I have been that parent, my son especially.

After school she saw me when she picked up her daughter from child care and she said 'thank you for your compassion'. I had to think a minute, she added that she really felt compassion from me when I walked by. It was so nice to hear that, and I am so glad I helped her day!
