One of my swimming #students , “T” gave me this on the final day of lessons. He had always come with his grandmother to classes, so I had assumed that she took care of him during the day. At one point during the classes, he mentioned that he lives with his grandmother, but I thought little of it. When he gave me the ornament though, I asked if they had vacationed in St. Croix, and his grandmother told me no, T and his parents lived there, but their home had been destroyed with the #hurricanes and so he was living with her until after Christmas, when he would go back to his parents (who were still in St. Croix rebuilding their home). T had been one of my more challenging students during the lessons because he had so much energy and I had only so much time to direct it in positive ways. Hearing his story made his behavior a lot more understandable, and heartbreaking at the same time. Thank you T, for being a reminder of why we should always be #thankful for the #blessings we have, and for the opportunities to listen to others’ #stories ...there is so much to learn in this life. #thankfulthursday #blessed🙏 #blessedtoteachthem #graciasadios🙏 #bendiciones🙏 #stcroixusvi #hurricanemaria
