Welcome to Anne's blog!

If you are new to the blog, you probably want to start at the beginning of the whole sad story. To get there, use the "Blog Archive" tool in the right column of the blog and click on "2009," and then "January 25." From there you can continue to click on each week to see the weekly entries.

I would love to hear from you! If you would like to leave a message, you can reach me at aheetderks@wcsmiami.org!

Friday morning, February 6, 2009

I got the sweetest package of notes from Ms. McCoy’s class last night.  After reading some of the comments, you will easily see why I adore working with young children.  So precious . . . 

Dear Mrs. Heetderks,

  • “I know that God is taking care of you and I don’t want you to forget that.”
  •  “I have been praying and praying.  We all need Jesus’ healing every once and a while. I just wish that the 10 foot ladder was only one foot tall.”
  • “Mr. Heetderks told us about you on January 27 and he almost cried.”
  •  “You are the best art teacher in the whole world.  You taught me stuff that my brother doesn’t know and he is in 8th grade.”
  • “I prayed for you last night.  My family prayed for you and even my hamster prayed for you.”
  • “You are really blessed.  My mom said that it is a miracle that you are alive.”

In addition to these sweet kids, I know that so many of you have been praying for my family and me.  Thank you for

 all of your words of encouragement. I hope to be sending my next update to you from my home.  Time will tell. 

Love to all--Anne
