Hello my lovely and dearest students! You are now back at school and have the opportunity to continue in this wonderful adventure of learning.

You know, when I was a little girl, my mother always told me: “You can do anything, because everything is possible.”

This is something that I believe to be true because everything I have wished for has come true, not by magic, but because of perseverance, dedication, and the belief that I could do it. Nothing that is worth while is easy. However, when you attain your dream you find that all that hard work and pain and effort was  worth while.

Here is the story of a boy who believes in himself. I am sure you will find it to be very inspirational  and it will help you have another outlook on life. It will help you see how silly you are when you complain about the little things in life. I hope it makes you realize that you can do anything you set your mind to do.

Remember, I love you always and carry you in my heart.

    A very inspiring story. Martha Olachea says now she knows how grateful she is for everything she has. Ma. Ximena Del Monte says she always wanted more than she had, now she will think and be grateful for what she has.
    The children became more aware of the things they take for granted because they already have them, they say they will value things more now.
    Thank you for caring. The children send their love.

    Gracias por tan bonito mensaje Miss Lilian! Hoy una maestra citó a Martin Luther King con una frase que me encantó:
    “Si no puedes volar, corre. Sino puedes correr, camina. Si no puedes caminar, gatea. Pero hagas lo que hagas, siempre sigue adelante.”
    Creo que de eso se trata, no importa las circunstancias, siempre encontrar la fuerza para movernos y seguir adelante.

    Hemos leído juntas “BELIEVE IN YOURSELF”, disfrutamos y platicamos sobre este hermoso video, mi hija dice que el niño es muy feliz porque lo ve en su carita, y que juega todos los deportes sin pensar en su pierna, dice que es “Un niño Campeón”…!!!
    Gracias por compartir este gran ejemplo de vida.

    Miss Lilian: First of all sorry for not seeing the blog earlier but we didn’t have the smart board for two weeks or more.

    We were very moved to see how the boy struggles each day, but instead of complaining he is grateful for what he has and what he can accomplish. We promise that next time we want to complain about something we will close our eyes and think about this boy and get motivated to belief in ourselves and do our best.

    We love you and hope to see you soon.

    4A and Miss Addis
