I make sketches whenever I find something inspiring and touching. Those moments filter through my mind and create a small world in my sketch book.

I'm sorry...

Hanna started preschool in August. I also started my second career as a preschool teacher at the same preschool. It's been difficult for us to adjust to this new situation. Mom is in the next classroom, but she doesn't come to hug me, even I'm crying! It took her several weeks to understand it.
One day, there was a challenging moment for Hanna. She needed to say sorry to her friend. Her teacher was with her and took her time to explain what happened. It was first time for Hanna to be told to say sorry by other than family members. She cried with all her strength to get held from me next door. I noticed her, but I didn't go to help her. This is a thing to overcome by herself. On that day, she couldn't say it in the end. At home, she seemed very tired and disappointed by herself. I hugged her until she felt a little bit better.
Next day, the teacher found the right time and asked her to apologize her friend. It was still very difficult, but she could whisper "sorry..." to her friend with the teacher's help. Later, she came to me with big smile on her face and told me she said sorry to her friend!
It was a really tiny thing. But it was a really important step for her. She gained small confidence in herself. I'm sure next time she will do better.
