Help me to never forget
The wonder, trust and yearning
in their bright, twinkling eyes.
Help me to remember that I’m shaping
the lives of tomorrow generation.
Please give me strength to be the best model
and the best example that I can possibly be.
Give love to overcome adversity
and patience to overcome trial.
Give me wisdom to overcome my shortcomings
and faith to overcome my dark hours.
And, as I find my rest tonight, help me to love my students
and to remember them in my prayers.
Give me strength to be equal in tomorrow’s task
for I depend on your strength,
just as my students depend on me
Help me to help them
as you have always helped me to help myself
On Oct 5th, do you like receiving gratitude,
or do you prefer showing appreciation
to your former teachers?
