Enjoy the Journey

This graduation gift card holder may be one of my favorites of all time–not just for graduation. I love the colors, I love the design and I especially love the words. My son’s teacher recently sent him off with similar graduation advice. She said, “In school, you learn lessons in order to be tested. In life, you are tested in order to learn lessons.” Without getting too religious or too philosophical on you, I have to say that this is a fitting reminder to cheerfully endure whatever test or trial you’re going through in the moment, whether it’s an academic lesson or a life lesson.

No One Measures Up to Teacher

At my son’s graduation yesterday, I saw bunches of little kids tearing up as they had to say goodbye to their teachers. Several fifth grade parents got emotional as well when their children received notes of encouragement from their former kindergarten teacher telling them how great she knew they would do in middle school. Although my kids have had many wonderful and dedicated teachers, there are a few that stand out as having gone the extra mile in small and simple ways. If you or your child has had a stellar teacher, then get this free printable gift card holder that makes a terrific end-of-year teacher thank you gift for a deserving educator.

Nobody Measures Up to Our Teacher
