Thank You StarShine

Looking back on the Thanksgiving holiday and on completing our first year of Kids Without Stuff blogging, I thought it would be nice to write a post saying ‘thank you’ and giving gratitude to StarShine; the kids, teachers and volunteers.

I am especially grateful for….

All the StarShine kids I have had the privilege to know.

The school library that comes and goes. (Read: Library Ala Carte)

Icing cupcakes, with the Fashion Girls, in the school kitchen. (Read: The Gourmet Cupcake Sale)

The High School Class applause when I finished reading to them. (Read: Reading to the High School)

Ms. Mosca’s, 2nd grade teacher, who made me laugh over her story about the chicken funeral. (Read: The Chicken Passed)

The proud experience of taking the high school girls to the Ritz Carlton Hotel for lunch. (Read: Fashion Club Girls Go to the Ritz)

Student Gerry, who taught me a lesson in generous giving. (Read: Raise the Titanic)

Time spent with student Austin, a fine young man. (Read: Special Moments - Austin)

The Kindergartners who laughed at the crazy hat I wore on the 1st day of school. (Read: Go Do Go)

The everyday good manners the StarShine students display. (Read: Great Manners and Kids Without Stuff)

Sharing a close moment with Angel. (Read: An Angel Cried)

Carla, and other students, who reached out to me, after graduation, via FaceBook. (Read: Carla)

Time spent browsing the used book stores for requested books.

Thank you all for sharing your books, laughs and tears with me.
