Monday, I received an email from Jackson's seminary teacher sent me the following message:
He’s a wonderful kid, and I’ve enjoyed his calming influence in class. He has a set of intangible skills that really uplift the class as a whole.
Thanks for letting me know and never apologize for a family situation! Family, at least in my mind, is what it is all about. I’m glad that Jackson was able to help out at home. He’s a wonderful kid, and I’ve enjoyed his calming influence in class. He has a set of intangible skills that really uplift the class as a whole. Thanks for letting me know, and I’ve changed it to parent excused. If it happens again, just let me know.
Thanks for all you do as a mother. You obviously are doing something well, because kids don’t turn out as good as Jackson without an awesome mother like you! In fact, if I may, let me quote your son. In his get-to-know-you letter to me, he said, “She is seriously the most amazing person and I love her to death…” I hope you get a thank you every now and then from your kids, but you should know that it is evident to me as a teacher of one of your children that you are doing a marvelous job!
Jackson missed a day of seminary last week because Colton was sick and school and I couldn't get away to go get him. Jackson went and checked him out, then stayed home with him. I had emailed his teacher to excuse his absence. The above email was his response.
What Jackson said in his class was so touching and it made my mama heart swell!! We don't often hear this stuff directly from our kiddos, but when we do... it's HEAVEN!
