There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship.
Thirty of my forty-two year teaching career was at my neighborhood school.
Only one of the teachers who opened the school with us, back in the ’90’s is still teaching.
She was the baby of the group and plans to retire at the end of this year.
We were a pretty strong faculty and staff.
We didn’t always agree, but we always had each other’s back.
We went through the hardships and joy of teaching; all the weddings, births, raising of children, graduations, marriages, and funerals.
All as one big family.
Today, was another one of those funerals.
I consider myself very fortunate to be part of this group.
Some of us meet regularly and have a busy calendar of fun, which includes birding, crafting, and hiking.
These ladies are very creative, in so many different ways.
Terri, who use to run our campus special education department, can do just about anything.
She just finished making this beautiful pillow for a baby in her family.
Terri drew the peacock and did a great job with embroidering.
The stitches are perfect.
I love the colors she chose.
On this very sad day, I just wanted to share a bit of beauty.
I asked Terri if I could post it on my blog, so here it is.
