"My name is Harry, I'm the Head Custodian at an elementary school in St. Louis, Mo. This is the conversation I recently had with a sixth grader waiting in the carpool line with her mother. .
Little Girl: 'Do you like being a custodian?'
Me: 'Yes, I love it!'
Little Girl: 'But, you have to clean up puke, that's so gross. how can you do that?' True, that isn't the most glamorous part of my job but, I do love it. We're there to do so much more than clean! Building relationships and providing the kids with a safe, clean, and friendly environment is my favorite part of the job.
I'm reminded of a few weeks ago when a child had a meltdown at lunchtime and was laying on the floor crying. The Principal was sitting on the floor trying to convince the child to get up and get to a calmer place, with no luck. As I walked by the doorway, I saw what was going on and tried to help. Not quite sure how but, it worked. I got the child to come out into the hall with me and then walk with me up to the conference room. (Child is blacked out to protect their privacy). This is the reason I love my job. This is the reason what I do matters. I'm here for a reason." #LoveWhatMatters #Love #InstaLove #LoveWins #LoveAlwaysWins #BelieveInLove #CherishEveryMoment #LoveEachOther #Kindness #Hope #Joy #Compassion #FindYourJoy #LoveIt #ShowLove #GiveLove #Giving #ThankYou #SmallActs #BeLove #WeAreLove #AlwaysLove #LoveAlways #ChooseLove #SpreadLove #LoveMore ❤️ ❤️ A Love What Matters Original Story
