If I need positive thoughts,
I think about my best student.

If I need motivation,
I think about my worst.

If I need a laugh,
I have a story for every day of the week.

If I need to understand,
I think about my student without a place to call home.

If I need to believe,
I think about the twinkle in their eyes when they first read.

Whatever "I need", my students give me.
I owe it to them to return the favor.
