Taken for granted

Dont Take People For Granted

Friday was my son’s first day of summer leave and the last day at the nursery.
When his vacation is over, he will be starting in Kindergarten since he is turning 3 in September.

Being his last day, my husband and I decided to give his teachers some gifts as a thank you for taking such good care of our most precious.
We bought them a selection of some of Gabriel favorite things. The teachers got very touched by this gesture and by the fact that they are appreciated.

Coming home I couldn’t get my mind of-of their reaction. From what I could see, this was not something they’re use to and that made me wonder.

These wonderful ladies who take care of the most precious I have, Why don’t we let them know how much we appreciate them?

People in jobs we see as “soft” often get taken for granted. We think it’s people that like to care for others, they will take care of our parents, our kids or they’ll take care of us when we visit the hospital.

We often forget that we can’t take that for granted.

I remember there was a time, where we were very unhappy with the nursery my son went to. The teachers there couldn’t care less. Several times I found my son standing there crying, times where we would call after 1/2 hour and he was still crying. It broke our hearts!

So one day we took him out of that nursery.

It was just a decision right there and then, on the spot. We had had enough. We had no plan for how we would get everything to work with our businesses and projects, but he had to get out. It also turned out to be a lot simpler than we feared.

The reason we put him in a nursery was to have fun, play with other kids, learn things and make friends.
After keeping him home for 4 months we finally got into another nursery closer to home. It was a massive difference.

Here we have the most amazing teachers, who genuinely love and care for the kids and that has a real interest in their development.
The feeling of leaving him there happy and picking him up happy is priceless.

We realized that they do amazing work for our son, so every Christmas and summer leave we show our gratitude and appreciation by giving them small meaningful gifts.

When you think of it, it is such a small gesture but makes such big difference in another person’s life. It gives them renewed energy to keep doing their best, especially when they know they are making such a difference in other people’s lives.

Remember to show your appreciation to the people that take care of your family members. It doesn’t have to be by buying gifts, but just by letting them know that they are valuable and make a difference. That will goes a long way.

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of
    your blog? Its very well written; I love what
    youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
