Student Of Limited Means Gives Teacher Touching Handpicked Christmas Gift Of Marshmallows
The holiday season is all about giving. Giving gifts to someone we love or care about is a way of showing our appreciation for them, and how much they mean to us in whatever form it might be. Unfortunately, some do not have the means to give as they have received.
Rachel Uretsky-Pratt, a teacher and loving mother, was overcome with emotion when one of her students went out of their way to give her a holiday gift before their school’s two-week break. In an emotional post on Facebook, she shared her experience with the world.
Rachel works at a school where the students attending not to have much to offer. “100% of my school is on free/reduced lunch.” she wrote in the Facebook post, “This kiddo wanted to get me something so badly, but had nothing to give.” But that did not stop this student from going out of their way to put together a very thoughtful, and heartwarming gift.
Pratt writes on Facebook “Rather than give me nothing, this student opened up her free breakfast cereal this morning- and took the time to take every marshmallow out of her cereal and put it in a bag- for me.” Rachel then followed her post with a picture of a lunch bag tied to the top with colorful marshmallows inside.
If this post does not speak to the kind heart of children, I don’t know what does. Pratt encouraged everyone at the end of her message to be grateful for what they have and to appreciate the gifts they receive from others. A truly inspiring message.
Frendzy Of Praise
It wasn’t just Rachel who found the gesture to be nice. She has since received more than 300,000 likes on her post and nearly 25,000 comments. The story of one student sparking words of encouragement to the student and prise of the teacher.
One comment on the post speaks volumes over the rest. A user named WouldYouIfIAsked wrote, “Hoping the spirits guard this child to become someone that can make a change.” I think they speak for all of us in saying that we hope just the same.
