The other day my daughter came home from school upset. The snack that I had been sending her to school with kept disappearing from her cubby and she was frustrated with what could be happening to it. At first thought I was mad. I wanted to march into that school and get to the bottom of it myself. Why would someone be taking her food? I grabbed my phone in my hand and immediately dialed up my mother to tell her my frustrations. I was hoping to get her advice on the matter before I started to over react. This was something I always did when I had a problem, call her AND over react . My mother always somehow has the best reasoning skills. When my mom answered the phone I began to tell her about how I thought someone might be stealing her snack at school and asked her what she thought I could do about it. This time however, her good reasoning stopped me right in my tracks and could you believe that she did it with only three little words. "Maybe he's hungry". Geesh, I hadn't thought of that. I broke down into tears. How foolish of me to jump right into the assumption that whoever was doing this was just being spiteful. This time of year everyone is talking about volunteerism and my kids and I are always happy to drop a few bucks in kettle as we walked by or donate our time to organizations in need of help, but now I was faced with a need right in front of me and I couldn't believe that I was absolutely oblivious to it until now.
