15. A gift that changes lives
Each year my children pick out items from World Vision’s Gift Catalogue to give their teachers. We have done this for many years, and each time we received teary-eyed gratitude. Teachers already change lives locally, and this allows them to change lives internationally.
We have so much to be grateful for at this time of year. And teachers deserve a thoughtful token of appreciation this Christmas.
I am so thankful that there are many phenomenal teachers out there that my children will soon have the opportunity to learn from. I know that they work exceptionally hard and are not acknowledged for their efforts as often as they should be.
So, to teachers everywhere, from the bottom of my heart – thank you for everything you do!
