Happiest Moment

Every day I wake up feeling grumpy. It’s a brand new day, but I know nothing new will happen. It’s the same old school-house routine and I’ve grown tired of it. School can be really boring sometimes. Or maybe most of the time. One day, in one of our groups, works in a school, an outreach program actually, we were asked to visit a home for street children. The group’s task was to conduct some sort of peer tutorial session with the street children in subjects like math and science. We were to teach them just the basics addition, subtraction, the human body. Stuff like that. In the process, we were also to observe their behavior and how they respond to us. I thought to myself, great. So I’ll spend my whole morning with a bunch of street kids. From what I know, street kids are mostly ill-mannered. What a waste of time, I know I won’t get anything from it anyway. I might even get into a fight with those kids. But still, I went to the home just to comply with the school requirement.

As we were packing up our things, a kid approached me and said, “Thank you”, and hugged me tightly. She smiled at me then left to join the other kids who were already in the dining area having their lunch. It was my happiest moment. I’ve never appreciated school activities like that before, and I’ve never felt appreciated like that before either. Perhaps my grumpiness has always engulfed me. Since that day at the home, I started to notice things that I never minded noticing before. I observed that my mom always smiled at me while she’s preparing my breakfast , and that my classmates always greeted me whenever I see them. My teachers praise me when I get A ‘s in my tests.
