You can count on me

A few weeks back my husband and I went to our Grandchildren’s Grandparent day. What a beautiful few hours it was!

The teachers made such a special effort for the children to enjoy their time with their grandparents. Our granddaughter was on top of the world seeing us walk into her classroom. She cuddled us and wrapped her arms around us. She was so excited, we made bracelets together, she showed us where she sat and she was an absolutely gorgeous hostess, she made us feel so welcome.

From our granddaughter’s classroom, we went to our grandson’s classroom. He was over the moon, he jumped, cuddled us, and wrapped his arms around us. He showed us where he sat and we made paper aeroplanes together. He also made us feel very welcome and his teacher put in such an effort for the children to enjoy their time with their grandparents.

Thank you, to these beautiful teachers for what they do, for what they give, and for sharing.

There was one experience I will never forget. My grandson’s class sang a song called, ‘You can count on me’, by Bruno Mars.

My gosh, what a beautiful song. The lyrics are about ‘friends’ and how you can count on a friend. How perfect is this song for a young class to grasp how important it is to be there for your classmate – a friend?

Here are a couple of verses

 ‘if you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of the sea

I’ll sail the world to find you

If you ever find yourself lost in the dark and you can’t see

I‘ll  be the light to guide you

Well find out what we’re made of

When we are called to help our friends in need

You can count on me like one, two, three

I’ll be there

And I know when I need it, I can count on your like, four three, two

And you’ll be there

‘Cause that’s what friends are supposed to do, oh, yeah


Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh, yeah, yeah

The children were so proud to sing this song and as an observer they loved it. What a great song for children to understand the importance of friendship. I can’t get the song out of my head.

In a working environment, what is your mantra/song you have so that people know they can count on you?

What about your friendships, what is your mantra/song you have so that your friends know they can count on you?

Much love
