It’s the little things that come from the heart that make our eyes water! 

A teacher in Washington is doing just that after posting a photo showing the little act of kindness from one of her students. 

Rachel Uretsky-Pratt of Kennewick, Washington posted the now-viral photo which shows a small bag of Lucky Charms marshmallows. 

According to Uretsky-Pratt, who works at a school with students from low-income families, it happened on Wednesday, the last day before winter break. 

“With it being the day before break and Christmas right around the corner, most teachers bring their kiddos something such as books or little treats and occasionally in return receive something from their students,” she wrote on Facebook. “Today I received some chocolates, sweet handmade notes, some jewelry, but these Lucky Charm marshmallows stood out to me the most.”

“This kiddo wanted to get my [sic] something so badly, but had nothing to give,” she added. “So rather than give me nothing, this student opened up her free breakfast cereal this morning, took the packaging of her spork, straw, and napkin, and finally took the time to take every marshmallow out of her cereal to put in a bag—for me. Be grateful for what you have, and what others give you. It all truly comes from the deepest parts of their hearts.”

Be right back while we cry our eyes out!
