Love

Over the past few days, I’ve been knitting some Monster Chunks for my 8th grade library workers.  This year I have four.  Four of the best teenagers that you’ll ever met.  We’ve spent the year shelving books, helping each other with complex vs. compound sentence structure ( I did most of the help), and lots of laughter.  I have good kids.  So good, that two of them are exempt from exams next week and today was our last day together.  So I gave them their monster chunks and gift cards to Starbucks.  Then they surprised me.  They had plotted together and crocheted me a scarf.  It’s so acrylic that it squeaks, but all I can feel when I wear it is the love that went into each stitch.  These kids are going to rock the world and damn if I don’t miss them already.
