All I really want

A few days ago I was working with one of my students on his attitude. I explained how we sometimes have to do things we don’t like to do, and that we always need to try our best. I also offered him an incentive. “How would you like to reward yourself for being good?” I asked. “Would you like a pencil? A sticker? Maybe a piece of candy?”

Edgar looked at me and sighed. I could see the longing in his eyes.

“I want Christmas.”

There is no response to that, I thought, as I swallowed. “I know sweetie,” I answered, “I want Christmas too.”
