I am a little shook up.
Today was a good day, eye opening and real.

We have a young woman who is comes in once
a week on Saturdays to clean our apartment.
She is hard working, has a good character, is responsible and honest.
While preparing her something to eat I usually chat with her a little.
She told me a while back that she had 3 girls, all in school.
I am aware that she makes a huge effort to keep them there.
So, I told her a while back that I would like to see their
grades when the report cards came in.
Report cards came in and they are having a hard time, all in the C range.
I decided to try and give them a little motivation and all 4 of us went out today.
We did not do anything extraordinary.
It was so eye opening to see effort this woman
is making on raising these three girls.
She does cannot spend a lot of time with them because she
has several jobs to make ends get close - not even meet.
When we started talking on the possible things we could do
after the next report card came in, what came up were
things that all kids take for granted - this I know from my friends' kids.
Going to the pool.
Going to the movies.
Having a sleepover, watch a movie and have popcorn.
Going to the park.
I was just grateful to be able to spend the day with these
3 girls. I am thankful for them and I just hope they enjoyed the day too.
