365 Writing Prompts: Bittersweet Memories

You receive a gift that is bittersweet and makes you nostalgic.What is it?

To me gifts are special,I received gifts from a variety of people. The ones I cherished most are those given to me by the kids I taught.

I found boys were quite thoughtful, one of the gifts I received was a bracelet from one of my students. I remember he brought it to my desk and waited to see my reaction. “It’s beautiful”, I said, “thank you.”

Kids are very thoughtful they have their own way of finding out their teacher’s likes and dislikes.Once I was asked by one of the boys, “What’s your favorite hockey team?”

I replied, “My favorite team is the Boston Bruins” he was a bit disappointed.

“But Miss they are not a Canadian team”, he said!

I told him, “it does not matter, most of the players are Canadian on that team.”

I guess he was relieved to hear my answer. One day he walked over to my desk and gave me a pin of the  Boston Bruin goalie. I was impressed.

All I could say was, “Thank you”,it seemed he didn’t hold a grudge against me for liking the ‘The Boston Bruin Hockey Team.”

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this post. Young people can be quite thoughtful. They seek an adult with whom to connect, a person to whom they may aspire to please, or to be like. These are very nice accounts of your students.

    All good wishes,

    robert
