.1%

As the school year winds down, several of my students are submitting last minute assignments in order to improve their semester average.  Today, one sweet student sent me an email, asking if there was anything she could do to raise her current grade just .1%.  I told her if she would write me a poem, I'd take a second look at her average.  An hour later, she sent me the following email:

Okay! This is just for you! :)

Ms. Romney you need not shed a tear
or have a single fear.
There is someone looking out for you high above,
with compassion and peace in the form of a dove.
No matter how bad you feel, he will find a way to show his love.

I gave her the .1%.

I love my students.
