today i had a much better day with my student. and my friend clare reminded me that we all learn from one another anyway, and not to be so hard on myself. and she is right. i do believe that we all have something to offer, no matter our experiences. i lost sight of that yesterday. i just see myself as a constant seeker and learner and it’s been an adjustment for me to see myself as someone’s mentor. but i think after today, i’m settling into it a bit more. this will be good for me.

one of my forever friends garrett sent me an email today. he’s wondering why i haven’t called him back. he’s called at least once a week for the last several weeks. he was wondering if i’m angry with him. angry with him? i’m just a little lazy about returning calls. i called him the minute i left work today because i knew his email meant business. he didn’t answer and i left a message. i hope he doesn’t take 3 weeks to call me back. can i just say i love garrett shook? he still lets me call him shorty (his nickname from 7th grade when he really was shorter than me) and when he calls and leaves messages he always says “hey, it’s shorty” and my smile gets really wide every single time.

Sending much love,
