QOTD – May 5 – Hope

We don’t spend enough time thinking about hope. A lot of us, simply by nature, have a defeatist attitude. We think that the glass is consistently half empty, and we forget that a simple turn of phrase can make everything better.

This morning, on the Facebook site called Student Quote of the Day – which, as a teacher, or just someone who loves insight into the minds of students and teachers, I highly recommend – someone posted the following note:

It reminded me that sometimes, hope can be found in the simplest of things – like a note. I keep saying that words are our super powers, and this is living proof. With a simple note, this student had the power to make that teacher feel like a success, because that student felt like one as well.

What quality in people gives you the most hope? Do you see this in yourself?
