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.
