Two Lovely Souls

I have sent out quite a few invitations to Nat’s graduation on November 11 (which originally was his due date!). Today Nat got a package in the mail, containing two beautiful pens and this letter:

It was signed with her name, Nyemade. When I asked if he remembered her, he said, “Yes.” I hope so. And I hope he knows how many lives he has touched.


Beautiful Sue.

How touching- I have tears rolling down my cheeks just reading that. There are some very special teachers who get our kids in such special ways. I always credit so much of Andrew’s success to his “people”.

Way to go, Nat!

As a former educator, I can’t even begin to tell you how meaningful that invitation must have been to his former teacher. I can hear those cheers… I may forget why I walk into a room sometimes, but I’m certain I’ll remember all of Justin’s teachers, and I’m equally certain on some level, he’ll remember them too. Absolutely lovely post!

What a great idea to invite his teachers. My son’s first teachers were among his best, and thus, my favorites. They not only taught him, they helped us to come to terms with the fact that our kids are receiving special ed services instead of attending “regular” preschool. I hope 11/11/11 is a special day for all of you.

How very sweet and very wonderful! He has touched so many Susan, and will continue to. It’s nice when people remember.
