Lucky Me


I’ve been asked to speak at a ceremony this weekend to honor a dear friend who won an award for Excellence in Teaching. She has been an incredible mentor and friend for many years. And I have some serious writer’s block going on about it.

I feel like everything I try to write either sounds saccharine or cliche. And I need to get it done, like NOW!

I really do feel so lucky to have been able to work with her, learn from her and for her friendship. I wouldn’t be half the teacher I am without her guidance. And she’s been there for me during some of my dark times too. At the risk of plagiarism; How DO you thank someone who has taken you from crayons to perfume? It isn’t easy but I’ll try.
