08/30/14 Weekend Grif.Net – Back to School Week, Saturday

[Concluding this week is some special advice, adapted from my wife and many
other mothers who find this a bittersweet time.]

In your child’s backpack or lunchbox, include a special “back-to-school kit”
envelope containing these items:

RUBBER BAND – to remind you of hugging and those times when you want to give
a hug or want to receive one

KLEENEX – to remind you to dry someone’s tears (or perhaps your own, so you
can see the tears of others)

BUTTON – to remind you to “button your lips” to keep from saying mean things
about others or talking when it’s not appropriate

TOOTHPICK – to remind you to “pick out” the good qualities of everyone –
including you

BAND-AID – to remind you of healing hurt feelings, either yours or someone

CANDY KISS – to remind you that everyone needs a nice treat occasionally

GOLD THREAD – to remind you that friendship is the golden thread that ties
together the hearts of everyone

ERASER – to remind you that everyone makes mistakes sometimes, and that’s
all right

LIFESAVER CANDY – to remind you to think of me as YOUR “lifesaver.”
Whenever need to talk, feel free to come see me!!!

MINT – to remind you that you are worth a MINT to me!
