Teacher Appreciation Week Gift

Last week was teacher appreciation week at school. I made two little baskets. The first one I made was for the Fussy and Fancy May basket challenge (HERE). This one is for my daughter's teacher who  loves Hawaii and I thought this Anya stamp was perfect for her. BTW, I won this wonderful stamp and many other things from 
Joni @ A sticky Situation.  Thank you Joni.  LOVE YA!

Inside is a tropical smelling candle.

The tag reads:

Although you are not their mother

You care for them each day.

You cuddle, sing and read to them

And watch them as they play.

You see each new accomplishment

You help them grow and learn.

You understand their language,

You listen with concern.

They come to you for comfort,

And you kiss away their tears.

They proudly show their work to you

You give the loudest cheers!

No, you are not their mother,

But your role is just as strong.

You nurture them and keep them safe

Though maybe not for long.

You know someday the time may come

When you will have to part.

But you know each child you cared for

Is forever in your heart!
