Last night I went home to say goodbye to my high school English teacher. (If you read this blog much you may have noticed that English wasn't my best subject.) I went to a small school at its peak about 800 kids k-12th grade. It was more like a large family rather than a school. And Mrs. R was the heartbeat of the high school. She will truly be missed.
What I noticed most of all last night at visitation was the impact she made on the world. There were so many of her former students, former students' parents, former co-workers, friends and family all of us were there to tell her family how much she meant to each one of us.
Funny, how funerals make you re-evaluate your own life, and I left wondering about the impact I'm making on the world.
I hope that as I move forward that I remember Mrs. R impact on my life and each time I'm teaching someone that I am at that moment having an impact on this individuals life.
Thank you Mrs. R for all you have done.
