Show and Tell Friday


Once again it is time for Show and Tell over at Kelli's place. Click here to find out morehttp://kellishouse.blogspot.com/. You should really join in as it is loads of fun!

I am showing off my apron today. This apron was made for me by some of my most loved children at the daycare where I worked . One of my favorite parents :) brought it in for me on my last day there. She wrote the saying "you have made an imprint on our lives" and then left me with all the paints to do the hand prints. Of course that is her daughters right there under the saying. :)

I became very attached to several of the children and leaving them was one of the hardest things for me do. I am very fortunate to still have contact with some of them, and do see some in passing. I miss them all so much and know they all have new teachers to love them, but it makes me feel so good when I do see them and they come running up to give me big hugs.
Thanks for stopping by!

I can imagine how hard it must have been to leave the children you'd got to know so well. But what a lovely way to remember them. A great apron!

Blessings.

The apron is beautiful and a wonderful memory of all the children whose handprints are on it. Thanks so much for sharing this. It gave me a great idea for a Christmas gift for my grandson, who is on the autistic spectrum to give his teacher. The teacher has kept my grandson with him for a second year and has been a great influence on his life. Thanks for the inspiration.

Oh what a lovely keepsake!!!!
When i was in the bus ministry at my old church, I had to leave due to a complicated pregnancy. At my shower one of my fellow busworksers presented me with a quilt with a square made by each kid. i cried right there in front of everyone... I love those kids stll 5 years later and think of them often! the quilt helps !!!
