Impact or Effect
Working with children first thing in the morning, it's easy to see how they are feeling and what their mood is like. They come in for breakfast, and I can tell if they are hungry (or not), sad, worried, happy or mad resulting from their home life, friends, or the people that are in their lives. The kids usually share with me what is going on, and why they are feeling the way they feel. I listen and sometimes I can give them advice; but mostly I listen and hope they know they are not alone and that they feel someone cares. From a greater extent, through what they share with me, I have learned that it's the smallest moments in life that have the biggest impact.
