I am 15



On this day in 1975, a young man came and sat next to me at a football game, we were 15. So much happened in those next few weeks to us, to those of us who went to Palmdale High School.
He told me he would always be there for me, and he has.

36 years we have known each other, how can that be? We have been married for 30 years and 6 children later. He still makes me smile.

Who says you can't find love at 15 . . .

Are They Students or Are They Friends?


Recently, I attended the marriage blessing of my very first student's daughter.  Then a few weeks ago I got to go to a Reunion Tea of some of my students.  There were 6 couples in the class and 5 of the moms and babies (plus a few older siblings) attended.   We had a wonderful time and at one point all 5 of the women were sitting there breastfeeding their little ones (made my heart so proud).  Two of these women took my class before and returned a second (lucky me!).

Lately, I am reminded how blessed I am to have these families walk in my door for the last 23 years.  They come in as students, usually leave as friends, many of them lifelong.  I learn so much from each one of my classes.

Sometimes I wonder when my students walk in my door if they think I am too old to be doing this, but I guess not.

I just want to thank each and every one of my students for enriching my life.

It is a great way to get a baby fix!

I love you all.
