A TIME FOR GIVING Teacher’s touching Christmas present from schoolgirl who ‘had nothing to give’.


A TEACHER received a heartwarming gift from a pupil a bag of marshmallows as she had "nothing to give".Rachel Uretsky-Pratt, 24, a third-grade teacher at a school in Washington, USA, posted an image of the little bag of treats which had been carefully picked out from the pupil's Lucky Charm cereal. The school Rachel works at provides its pupils with free breakfasts and free or reduced-price lunches.
So this little girl, who had no money to get her teacher a gift on the last day of term, carefully picked out the tastiest part of her cereal and wrapped it up in a bag to give to her beloved teacher. Rachel shared a photo of the adorable gift on Facebook with this message: "With it being the day before break and Christmas right around the corner, most teachers bring their kiddos something such as books or little treats and occasionally in return receive something from their students."Today I received some chocolates, sweet handmade notes, some jewellery, but these Lucky Charm marshmallows stood out to me the most. The post warmed the hearts of many and was shared 118,000 times and liked 349,000 times. Out of the 21,000 comments on the post, most showed their appreciation for this wonderful Christmas message. One wrote: "Wow .. that's a message in its self..loving & amazing!! It only takes one to make what we do worth it!!"While another commented on this message: "That’s what makes you such a wonderful teacher.💕You took the time to get to know the student and you appreciated what she gave you because you knew it was from her ♥️".And another Facebook user commented: "Precious! This is what teaching is All about!"In an interview .Rachel said: “All my kiddos are super sweet and giving.“Kids are naturally kind and loving. The world kind of hardens us sometimes.”"You see, 100% of my school is on free/reduced lunch. They also get free breakfast at school every day of the school week. This kiddo wanted to get my something so badly, but had nothing to give."So rather than give me nothing, this student opened up her free breakfast cereal this morning, took the packaging of her spork, straw, and napkin, and finally took the time to take every marshmallow out of her cereal to put in a bag for me."Be grateful for what you have, and what others give you. It all truly comes from the deepest parts of their hearts. Happy Holidays. 💕".
