The letter reads:
Over the last couple of months I have noticed your dedication to your drawings. You sit at your desk and at every spare moment you grab a drawing tool (pen, pencil, pencil crayon, or felt) and paper. You draw what you feel, and I love it! I need to ask you a favor.
Can you please decorate my desk? My desk needs a personality, and I think it needs yours. Draw whatever is in your heart. There is only one rule, you draw what your heart wants to draw, and not what you think I want to see.
If you agree to my request, please fill out this form and return it to me later today.
Thank you Madysen!
A gift of validation. An emphasis on strength rather than weakness. An unnecessary but memorable kindness.
Put that in a VAM formula…
