Sister Kim's Girls Overwhelm Me with their Letters (Little Flower Catholic High School for Girls)

Friday, November 29, 2013

It was a busy week leading up to Thanksgiving—five days in Boston, a wind-rushed trip home, four rather complex side dishes to make in time for a fine family meal. And my boy is here—so rare, now, to have him near. So rare, and so I pause and stop for him.

Into all of this came a package from Little Flower Catholic High School for Girls. A brown envelope that held within some of the most moving letters I have ever received. Those of you who read this blog know how Sister Kim came to share two of my novels—Undercover and House of Dance—with her class. You know about the projects they created. But now, through letters, one by eloquent one, I met these girls. I learned a little about their lives. I got to see what it was like to meet me Elisa and my Rosie for the first time.

And I was honored by their presence in my life. 

For the love in these girls' hearts. For the passion that Sister Kim instills in them. For the glory of goodness. For small things that are the biggest things, I am grateful on this day after Thanksgiving. I am blessed that the right readers found these books. And I am once again in awe of the transporting wisdom of younger readers.

Thank you, Sister Kim. Thank you, Every Sweet Little Flower-er.
