Ps. I love you

“Hey Joel.

I’m a middle school teacher in a rough neighborhood and I have been dealing with a lot of burnout issues. I want to quit bad.

But a student came in yesterday morning and wrote me this note I want to share with you and, if you’d like, your readers.”

Above story + photo came from a reader this week. (Thank you for sharing Mr. R!) What a perfect message at the perfect time.


Dear everyone,

I’m not sure if you’re going through a rough patch right now in life… But I hope you know there is more love for you in this world than you probably realize.

Keep doing what you’re doing. People may not say it out loud, but they love and appreciate you.

And, I love you too.

Enjoy your well earned weekend!
– Joel 💙
