“Every Little Thing Wants to Be Loved”


By Lisa Gilbert

Every little thing wants to be loved.  And so it is with animals in a shelter.  Last week St. Peter Academy collected blankets, towels, and sheets to donate to the Animal Rescue League of Boston.  Led by their teacher, Mrs. Christine Miller, our kindergarten students decorated some blankets in their classroom.  When they were finished, they announced that they “filled them with love” as they were painting them, so that the animals would always be “surrounded by love.”  Even kindergarteners know that every little thing wants to be loved.
