Gathering Acorns

Once there was a little girl who adored acorns.  At recess, she would gather them to her heart's content.  The prized woody seeds smelled of springtime and rain.  Much to the local squirrels' dislike, she would carefully place the prized collection into her school desk for safe keeping.

One day, her teacher spied the girl's desk... full of acorns and ready to burst at the seams.  Sadly, the little girl emptied her desk of the hoard.  After all, she did need a place to store her school supplies.  The tiny treasures were gone, but never forgotten.

Many years past and the little girl grew up to be a teacher, full of whimsy and incredibly mindful of the small wonders in life.
