How does this apply to your life?
Every day, I try to pray for someone I know, for another Gideon, for Prentiss County Schools and for our first priority, our students and our children. Many of you have heard me say, the one thing we can NEVER make a choice about is who our parents are. I challenge myself and you to consider that. When you have a child in front of you, in your thoughts, in your prayers, in your classroom, in the booth next to you crying/screaming your entire meal, picking their noses, throwing up in your classroom, or just being difficult to get attention, even negative attention just so he/she can have someone prove to them they care, remember that and then? pray for that child and for me. I have many contacts, tonight I wish to let you know, I picked you, you are not a generalization. I value you and I pray for you. Prayers said for you and thanks from my heart for all you do for any child you encounter. And remember, Nancy would want you to.
