Ok so I am addicted...
| Today I took my son to the ordontist. As we sit in walks my 3rd grade teacher with her two grandsons. I have not seen her in about 20 years but she has not changed much. Just a bit older looking but not much. She was my favorite teacher!! She also became our high school librarian so I was close to her then too. Well here is the thing. She did not recognize me and I was glad of it. I sat there and tried to analize why I did not go over there and hug her neck and tell her who I was.She would have known if I had done so. Why!! I used to be shy and have not felt that way in a long time. But today I felt like that child again. I was in awe of her again today. I watched the way she interacted with her grandkids and realized why I love her so much. She is so good with kids. I kind didn't feel good and did not want to talk to anyone either. But another part of me wanted to tell her I was teaching 3rd grade at the same exact school she taught me!! How ironic is that? But then I wished I was more fixed up -- I barely put on makeup and fixed my hair plus I am not the 95 lbs. she last saw me!! More like 170.
So instead I watched her!! it was fun and safe
