You can barely see it, but Issa has a little scuff on her right brow. She didn't say a word about it, but her teacher left a message on our answering machine since Issa stays for after school on Wednesdays.
Yesterday, one of Issa's friends started across the monkey bars and got stuck. He was calling for help, and since Issa was closest she ran to help. He panicked, and he accidentally kicked her. She still helped him down, and she didn't fuss one bit about her own injury. Her teacher left a message explaining what happened, apologizing for the scuff, and praising Issa for being a good Samaritan.
When I listened to the message with Issa, she brushed it off like it was no big deal. Since then, she's asked to listen to it a few more times. It will stay on the machine; she deserves to hear the praise a few more times--especially since she's been so humble.
I am one proud mama this morning.
