My First Power Lunch

I am taking part in this literacy program at a local South Boston school. My new friend is an 8 year old third grade girl. We meet every other week to read books and eat lunch. Today was our first day. We got to talking about Halloween costumes and she told me she's going to be Madea. Fantastic.

When it was time to leave, she went to the door to line up with her buddies and I turned around to start packing up our books. Then I felt two little arms wrap around my waist. Without a word, she hugged me lightly, then got back in line. I think I'm in love.


  1. You're such a do-gooder!!!! I want a lunch buddy!

  2. Awww so sweet. You definitely make good use of your time, woman!

  3. PowerLunch is in many cities. Maybe in your's? Its a great program and you can split your time w/ a colleague so you go every other week instead of every week.
