So why is Neela my Neela Girl? Her attitude mostly. I don't know if I have ever seen her in a bad mood. She always smiles at me when she walks in my room, she is funny and she works hard.
She is participating in my Slice of Life project and I have enjoyed reading her honest slices and learning more about her.
On Monday, St. Patrick's Day, she walked in to get here sticker for SOL and exclaimed "Happy St. Patrick's Day!" and promptly flung homemade shamrock confetti. It made me smile. She did it again when she came to my reading group that afternoon, and that time, it made me smile even more because it was perfect timing.
Today, the first day of spring, she brings me a flower made out of her hand with a, "Happy first day of spring!" that was so catching you couldn't help but to smile.
Every time I pull out the read-aloud book, she gets so excited.
Such simple things, but they make such an impact on my day.
I love my Neela Girl and the kindred spirit that she is!
