A blog post from a former student

As a teacher, I have encountered thousands of lives.

Every now and then, a certain student, group of students, or maybe even an entire class slips their way into my heart.  Upon graduation, I leave it up to the students to choose for themselves whether they will stay in my life or not. 

In 2006, I was blessed to teach an amazing group of students...the entire class remains my very favorite.  Six of those students wormed their way deep into my heart and have become friends.  I may use the words "former students: when I describe them to others; but in truth, they are close friends.

On Friday night, I met up with a couple of them after the dedication of the high school announcer booth to my dad.  What could have been an overly emotional night became, with their help, a night filled with laughter.  I was so lucky to be surrounded by love as everyone around me allowed me to share some of the best stories about my dad.

One of those sweet girls survived a brain tumor about six months ago.  From that experience, she started blogging.

Tonight she blogged this post.

And touched my heart in a way she will never realize.
