Thank You Note from an 8-Year Old

For a long time I’ve had a thank you note on my bulletin board.  It’s fading so much you can barely read it.  I thought I should record it for posterity because it worth remembering.  She made it on her own while I was meeting with her mom and dad next door.  She gave it to me after the session:


Then below her words she drew two figures in bright pink: a little girl with long hair, a big smile and hands raised into the air standing next to a huge flower with a smile face and a big heart for a stem.

That sums up pretty much why we do what we do.
