It's Who You Know by Jacki Sellmansberger
I was thinking this week about all the connections with people that I have in my life. There are some people, (like my Bob), who I really believe could be quite content without a lot of daily interaction with people. If he had his guitar, a computer, a fly rod, and me, I think he could live a fairly contented life from day to day. Whereas I, on the other hand, need people in my life! Now don’t get me wrong. I definitely enjoy my “quiet space” every now and then, but in general, I love being around people of all ages!
I read something this week that really struck a chord in me about this very topic.
“Don’t regret knowing the people that come into your life! Good people give you HAPPINESS.
Bad people give you EXPERIENCE. The worst people give you LESSONS,
and the best ones give you MEMORIES!
As I walk through the halls of Nesbit, or think about my teaching career, I think about all the people (including children), who have crossed my path. There have been lots and lots of “good ones” that have brought me much happiness, but there have also been a few who have given me experiences and taught me rich lessons, so that I would be wiser the next time. And really, whether it has been good, bad, or ugly, I am filled with the richest MEMORIES one could ever have! I am truly thankful for every person that has come into my life.
Cynthia Saffo continues to improve and work with her therapy. Sunshine will be sending something this week-end to Laura Sciacca. Continue to remember both of them. Mr. Tom (can man) has congestive heart failure and can no longer drive. Sunshine has sent him a card to let him know we are thinking of him. Jocelyn, we are glad to see you up and about. Please let us know how we can encourage you.
