I am thankful for reconnecting with an old friend. I went to a workshop today and also attending was one of the directors of special ed. in our county. She and I began our careers in side by side classrooms that for several months were missing a wall between them. We didn't have much time to chat but discovered that we now live just a few miles from each other.
Echo of spring, this rose was a gift from my brother and his kids to Mom on Mother's Day a few years ago.
