I am instantly concerned when my kid arrives home with a note.
Initially, I suspect it is from a teacher informing me my kids have caused trouble.
When siblings Annaliese and Jorge came home one day their parents were surprised to receive a letter in their backpack, they didn’t know what to expect.
This wasn’t a letter of complaint, it turns out it was from the bus driver who drives their kids to school every day.
Bus driver Cindy Clausen sees everything that happens on the bus when she drives the local kids to and from school every day.
If anyone misbehaves or does a good deed she knows which kid it is.
Recently she noticed some kids being considerate towards a disabled boy, who is usually excluded and sits alone as he generally has a hard time in school.
These kids actions motivated the boy to feel content about coming to school every day.
Cindy wanted to inform the parents and express how impressed she was with the behavior of their children.
So she decided to write them a letter.
The letter was posted on Love What Matters addressed to parents Jorge Sr. and Leonor, in just a few days, it received thousands of likes and shares.
Here’s what the letter said:
“Dear Jorge and Leonor,
I am compelled to write to tell you how beautiful your children are, inside and out!
This can only come from the home, your patience and guidance, the examples that you set and teach.
I have a child on my bus named Jackson.
Both of your children have shown him much compassion and support.
Every day your children ask if they can sit with Jackson.
Some days Jackson is a little sad getting on the bus but as soon as he sees Annaliese and Jorge he smiles.
Jackson has difficulties walking and it takes a bit for him to get to his seat.
Today Annaliese looked out from around her seat and said, ‘come on Jackson, you can do it’ and when we arrived at school Jorge took it upon himself to carry out his backpack!
I know you know how wonderful your children are, but I wanted you to know that it shows!”
