“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.” Numbers 6:24-26
Dear Mrs. Kindergarten Teacher,
Today I will entrust you with my firstborn. She is my joy. She is my hopes and my dreams incarnate. From the very beginning she has kept me on my toes, and I am sure you will be no different. She is so ready to learn! I see so much potential for her life and her calling.
…teach her conflict resolution with her peers.
….instill within her a love for reading and writing and math and science.
…help her to enjoy the learning process.
…embrace her sense of wonder.
…help her to do her very best without being paralyzed by perfectionism.
…be gentle with her.
You and I are in this together. We are partnering together to raise this child to make difference in this world.
I have been praying for you, and I know you have been praying for us.
Take care of my angel.
And as I heard at the kindergarten orientation, I promise to believe only half of the things she says about you if you do the same for me.
