As she stood there, one of the soldiers who acted as pallbearer came up to her. 'Were you Sanjay's math teacher?' he asked. She nodded: 'yes.' Then he said: 'Sanjay talked about you a lot.'
Opening the billfold, he carefully removed two worn pieces of notebook paper that had obviously been taped, folded and refolded many times. The teacher knew without looking that the papers were the ones on which she had listed all the good things each of Sanjay's classmates had said about him.
'Thank you so much for doing that,' Sanjay's mother said. 'As you can see, Sanjay treasured it.'
That's when the teacher finally sat down and cried. She cried for Sanjay and for all his friends who would never see him again.
If you've received this, it is because someone cares for you and it means there is probably at least someone for whom you care.
Remember, you reap what you sow. What you put into the lives of others comes back into your own.
May Each day of your Life
Be Blessed As Special As
