I think the timing couldn’t be more perfect.
This morning I wrote the post “What Encourages Me“, describing the joy and satisfaction of teaching. And this evening, at bath time, this little conversation takes place with my 5 yr-old daughter …
Me: “Esther, you’re brushing your teeth really well.”
Esther smiles as she conscientiously brushes on.
Me (extremely impressed): “Wow, Esther, I really love the way you brush your teeth … you really do it very nicely.”
Esther: “Daddy, you taught me well.”
That sure made my day 🙂
