While I was supervising some of my teachers in their respective subject taught in their classroom, I was surprised when some of these kids kept on coming in one by one and handed me a handdrawn valentine card. I just quipped, "Thank you."
After awhile I proceeded to my office. Another group of preschool pupils rushed in with a hand-made valentine card in their hand. I was amused of such excitement displayed by those kids. Again, I said, "Thank you, kid. Happy Valentine's Day, too!"
I read those cards with a sketchy shape of a heart in the cover and it's colored by a red crayon. The common message written in a black pencil was: "Happy Valentine, Sir Camporazo!"
These kids were so enthusiastic as they hurriedly came in to my office. They greeted me in a chorus, "Good Morning, Sir!" For them, their simple, unpolished work of art is perfectly done and it is sufficient enough to make me happy as their school principal.
I love these little preschoolers too. I know they are not only loved by their respective parents, but they are loved by the Lord too. In the Bible, they are likened to the kingdom of heaven.
I commend their teacher, Mrs. Josie Alensondra for teaching them correct values and manners. And one of these is love. I also recognized their respective parents and guardians who brought them up "in the nurture and admonition of the Lord."
Valentine's Day is not only for the lovers, for the adults, but also for the kids to express themselves in a simple and unique way the love and gratefulness they receive from their loved ones and even their teachers and school principal who look after for their welfare in the future.
For them what they share is the greatest love of all.
Again the thoughtfulness of these kids are the very beginning of their well-mannered attitude and loving and caring traits which couldn't be bought from any market or mall. This is of course, the primordial responsibility of their respective parents and supplemented by their teachers.
Thank you Adrian, Lyneth, Romnela, Jellian, Erol, Eugene, Katherine, Irish, Mark Justine, Winchelle and Khenneth for you card. I will treasure your thoughtfulness and love for me as your school principal.
