One night at our art class, I handed out glow bracelets to all the young artists who came to draw with us.
A young girl wanted to light up ALL the bracelets at once
but I said “No”
I wanted to save them for the other kids, I explained.
“Oops!” she said, looking at me
and accidentally (on purpose) cracked one of the bracelets – causing it to glow.
She was testing my boundaries (as kids will do)..
and I smiled.
“Well, now you have to do a job for me,” I told her..
“Take that bracelet, go outside
and when you see someone walking alone – give it to them.”
The little girl jumped up and ran outside to complete her mission.
Inside, one of the kids looked at me and said,
“That’s a really nice thing you did.”
I said, “That’s a really nice thing Perla is going to do.”
