Kids bring worries to school. I had an idea one day and shared it with the kids, We need a worry box to dump our worries. “Write your name on a paper for every worry you have and before you slip the paper into the slot in the box cover, say a prayer and ask God to help you.” Every day I wait for the kids to finish up their worries.

One child works at writing his name on many papers. I question him, “Timmy, Are you almost finished?” The young child slouches on his knees and legs, gives me a wary look and sighs. He pushes up his large glasses that keep falling on his nose. “Well, Mrs. Reynolds, I have a lot of worries today, but I’m almost done.”

I smile at Timmy and get a bigger smile in return. I walk back into the classroom and say, “Sorry for the delay class, but Timmy has a lot of worries today.” They wait for Timmy to finish, and no child complains. One girl raises her hand and says, “I know how Timmy feels. I had a lot of worries last week.”

Today is not a good day; it is a great day. Silently I say a prayer to God, thanking him for the Worry Box success.
