Last week was Brett's birthday, on his birthday I went to the mail box and there was a post card for him. I brought it in and read who it was from and about started to cry, it was from his 5th grade teachers. Mrs. Hair and Mrs. Beveridge. They were his teachers 2 years ago and they have sent a card for the past 3 years. You all know that I come from educators, but I know that my parents did not send their former students birthday cards, not only a card but they are still giving him a hard time about liking BYU! What awesome teachers!! Who does this?
5th grade was a hard year for the Davis household, after Brett's burn and the problems we had with people teasing him and making his life hard, we were worried about sending him back to school.. I did not care if he learned anything that year, we just wanted him to have a little bit of self confidence and not feel inferior to everyone. These two women gave us so much more than we could have hoped. Not only did Brett get back some of his self confidence, he actually learned quite a bit. We will forever be grateful to them for what they were able to give back to Brett. They took the time to care about him and his well being. And they still are caring about him, it is truly amazing to me that they would take the time to do this and make a kid feel special and like they matter.
I guess with the holidays approaching and the anniversary of his burn we have a lot to be thankful for and it is all starting to hit me. I hope that I can make a difference in a person's life like these two wonderful ladies.
