As I've said before, it's usually either a Terrible Tuesday or a Terrific Tuesday...but it's rare I have a Teary Tuesday!
Stella was absent when I took attendance this morning. That isn't what made me teary.
She showed up at 10:00 with a tardy slip. That's not what made me teary either.
I didn't blog about it because I was really upset about it on Friday, but Stella really hurt my feelings. She said something very unkind to me and I told her that I need some time to feel warm and fuzzy about her again. I told her that I still love her, but I really don't like the choices she makes and the words she lets out of her mouth. She told me she has no feelings.
So yeah, I was a little raw over Stella.
She showed up at 10:00 with her dirty hair and the same outfit she probably wore the whole weekend and I just instantly forgave her. She had her trademark Stella look on her face and handed me a pink pencil pouch. Inside was this:
This picture looks exactly like me.
Dear Ms. Buckler,
Me and myself are giving you a little present. I know I can be a little mean but sometimes I am nice. But I am not a cold prickly right now. I am being a warm fuzzy!!!
P.S. I love you.
Cue the tears! Tears and a bear hug to Stella! I said, "Stella, I really do love you. Especially when you are being a warm fuzzy, but even when you forget."
She said, "I will try to get better."
Oh Stella! How you make this crazy, crazy job worth it!
Have a Wonderful Wednesday everyone!
