The best Christmas present.
This is a sneak preview of my amazing partner Robyn G. May's Christmas present - unfortunately it's not from me but it's the most wonderful present anyone could ever get.
Robyn is a teacher in America but her qualification doesn't count here, so she has been working as a teaching assistant.
She specialises in working with kids with problems and at the moment she works one to one with just one girl.
She's had spinal surgery for a tumor which has left her in a wheelchair and with a catheter because she has paralysis.
It's tough - I can't begin to tell you the problems this brave little girl has to face.
Often, she screams and screams with pain.
I don't know how Robyn copes with it but women are tougher than men.
Anyway, on the last day of term the little girl gave her this canvas which we will treasure and a Christmas card which said;
"Thank you for helping me"
Which is just about the best Christmas present anyone could ever wish for.
