This memory took place only a couple of weeks back. A young girl I was working with was staying with her aunt for the morning as her mum had gone to get her hair done ready to celebrate her birthday the next day. (It was the first day of coming out of lockdown here in the UK).
Our main focus was punctuation. So, I suggested to the young girl that we perhaps wrote a letter to her mum saying thank you and a happy birthday.
This is what she created:
I am writing to thank you for the amazing work you have done for me in the past 11 years. I appreciate everything you have given me, and you are the one who makes me the happiest.
I just want to share a memory of how you have helped me and quite frankly been a superstar.
This year has been tough doing home schooling and not being able to see people. But we as a two have managed to keep positive. I couldn’t have done it without you. The way you helped me complete tasks and made me happy. But we did it!
Also, this is something that you have done that I think is super. You have helped my mental health and when I get angry, worried, and sad you have been the one that solved the problem.
As I mentioned about the completing tasks, I wanted to share why. You have done so much like emailing the teachers, researching about things, and helped me improve my writing, and came up with all sorts just for me.
I couldn’t thank god much more for having a mum like you, I’m forever thankful. Although we have our bickers, we still manage to love each other which is an amazing feeling.
I hope you have a wonderful birthday, and you really deserve the world. I love you!
Love and celebrations,
I thought it was beautiful and wanted to share some of the lovely work and kind words that the children we work with can achieve.
Have a great week and warm wishes,
