OK, so this really isn't about being as materialistic as this is going to sound, so bear with me.
Last year in June, my most favorite class graduated
. It made me really sad to see these kids go, yet satisfied that I had done all I could to help them on their journey. Last weekend (Canadian Thanksgiving) I got married to my boyfriend of 15 years. But, that's not why I am writing.
The week before my wedding, I had a number of graduated students return to the school to wish me all the best and to congratulate me on my wedding! Two students even flew in from Halifax and stopped by to give me a huge hug and a card and tell me that they wished they could be at my wedding (Ha! but I didn't invite them!) And, they probably actually flew in to see their family on Thanksgiving, not just to congratulate me, but who's keeping score, really?!
I also received a few wedding gifts from these students who stopped by. Chocolates, candles and an amazing crystal cake serving platter that I always wanted. I have no idea how she knew about that! What an incredible group of kids those were! I can't believe they remembered my wedding date.
I miss them.
