"A variation of the lesson my grandmother taught me when I began teaching school. She retired (twice!) and still subs at age Her advice to me was to love the kids who are the hardest to love, because those are the ones who need it more. Best advice ever.
A movie (haven't read the book yet) about the treatment of the help in the southern states in the 1960s. An eye-opening story about how caring black women raised the children of their white employers and how they were treated in return. I wish this book had been written in the 1960s like the movie depicts!
It's easy to focus on the hardships (I do it all the time), but without those hardships would we ever see how important the ones we love are? It's through hardships that you learn what it truly means to love and be loved. To have hope when the world tells you you should be hopeless and faith that stands the test of time. I am blessed to be able to truly miss someone. I am blessed
Smart… Kind… Important From “the Help,” an outstanding book. Aibileen had it right. And if you don’t know it already, this message is for you. If you DO know these things, have you taken the time to teach someone else? We’re all worthy of Love. (via Inspiration ⚓ Optimism ⚓ Gratitude)
