The WOW Factor

I went to work today and we had an assembly. It was supposed to be a dance exhibit. I dragged my feet and worked on a project I needed to finish up then decided I best get my butt over to the gymnasium. I barely walked in and sat down when the woman at the microphone held up a banner she had made. She talked about how it was an award she had made up and it is called the "WOW Award". She is giving it to people who just "Wow" others. Then she said she was giving this to a woman at our school who goes above and beyond the call of duty and loves the kids more than anyone she can think of. Yup.....she called me forward.
I about fainted. How honored I felt. I was truly knocked off kilter by her kind words. Several boys ran down and surrounded me to hug the air out of me. I had to shoo them away! It was very sweet and silly at the same time.
So here is my banner. I'm going to hang it in my sewing room so I can think about those kids long after I am away from them!
Actually, they are the ones who "WOW" me every day.
