Ricki is learning the social subtleties of life. And appreciation.
Ricki received a few days ago a small birthday gift from one of her classmates. And for once, she felt the need to reciprocate. She went to her drawer, searched for something, and choose a very nice trinket she had been given by me as a prize. I noted that it was something fitting for an eighth grader. She then took a sheet of colored paper, wrote a letter (hope the friend will manage to decipher it….), and packed it all away to her school bag for tomorrow.
