Every morning, blazing hot or freezing cold, she’s there, the green-coated phenomenon.
With a sigh, I muster the energy to get up out of my driver’s seat and walk around to the passenger side to grab all my teachers bags. Before I look up, I smile to myself knowing what’s in store.
I swing my door closed and sure enough, there she is.
Hand raised above her head, ready to greet, to bring warmth on the coldest of days.
A warm wave and a BIG smile.
Every day, no matter what. She makes it a little easier to come to school bright and early, especially on those cold, frigid Mondays.
And though I couldn’t tell you her name, I can’t thank her enough for the sunshine she chooses to spread with a wave and a smile.
All appreciations to my Crossing Guard.
