Susan and Pam,

I know just what you mean about thoughtful presents, and the ones that you keep forever.

In my classroom I have an American Flag wreath given to my by a student that I carried to Gettysburg when she was in 8th grade. Shortly after we returned, she was in a terribel accident and  suffered a broken neck (has fully recovered and is doing great in high school!)

She came in the next Christmas with a package and gave me a big hug and told me to open my present.  In it the American Flag wreath.  She said that because of her accident, she did not get to properly thank me for taking her to Gettysburg and she wanted me to know how much the chance to go to Gettysburg meant to her!  (I did not cry but my eyes were sweating a little  :-)

That wreath is the first thing I hang up in my room in August and the last thing I take down in June!
