Tonight was my girls' graduation (my church small group girls). We finally got a picture together (all of us). It was such a beautiful time and I was so glad to take pictures with them and just be there on part on their journey. I have been truly blessed and honored to have walked with them and I'm excited to see what the next few years hold for them.
On another note, I saw a student who I had in my first class ever and as luck would have it, I had a bag of pictures to go through while the reading of the names went on (there were over 400...cut me some slack). I gave her some of the pictures that she was in and during the party where we had decorated gingerbread houses, she said she remembered that my sister had come that day to help. I didn't even remember that. It was neat to reflect for a moment with her.
I'm so glad that I have chosen education as my profession and that I've been a small group leader...tonight's moments reassure me.
