I just love that you did this! It's such a treat for us, of course, but also, how wonderful and affirming it is for you to look back on all the goodness that was part of your life last year. And what better way to enter into the new year than with a heart full of gratitude!

Hi Relyn,

I remember most of these posts and have brushed up on those I missed. I should think you always write from the heart.

I've just had a wonderful half-hour with you. You're such a gifted person and I feel blessed to have met you. Your thoughts on teaching help me become a better teacher, too.
May you have another meaningful year!

I really think the "colors" pictures of your class are going to have me smiling for days!

I am so glad to have found you here...you are such a special person.

Lovely post!

Meri said...

I think I still love "The Corner was Mine" the best. It makes me cry every time I read it -- for every child that has been humiliated by a teacher too full of his/her power and too short of compassion; for the goodness of every teacher like you.

Relyn,
I just loved these snippets but the one about the walk done me in. I have always been a Mom that said yes more than no and taught my girls to embrace the moment and be aware of what is around them. I have two, very happy, secure teenagers that I love very much and saying yes has a lot to do with it! Sorry for my punctuation and spelling errors. I was out smelling the roses rather than studing LOL! You sound like a wonderful teacher also.

Oh Relyn...My favorite FAVORITE one here..."At this Moment", about time's passing....That was brilliance. BRILLIANCE.

Oh how I can relate......
