More ordinary miracles (with gratitude to Doug Johnson)

“Tooth Bookmark”

On Monday I read Doug Johnson’s post A day of ordinary miracles and smiled in recognition at his list of “small miracles” that happen in libraries and schools every day. Here is my list, based on this week in my school library:

[I wish you a day of ordinary (library) miracles and little things to rejoice in…]

A pair of third graders staging an impromptu readers’ theater just because they like the book so much
A struggling student who finds a pirate book that keeps him mesmerized for 20 minutes
A respected teacher who calls you “the resource queen”
A group of colleagues who come to your early morning PD presentation even though it’s optional
A volunteer who creates picture book displays for you because she can see you’re really busy
A school office staff with a sense of humor
A student who makes you your own bookmark, with teeth

Thank you, Doug, for reminding us to notice and celebrate these small miracles.
