Who is your positive influence?
Monday, July 23, 2012
Mine is my neighbor of 24 years, Ann. She is simply contageous.
I think when I first met her I didn't believe anyone that genuine existed. Actually on the first day we really met my then first grader (now days away from turning 30!) was due to get off the schoolbus and didn't. Her 5th grade son was allowed to get back in the bus to look for her.. and didn't see my daughter. The bus rode away. I was in panic mode and fell apart right there in front of Ann. She was a positive rock and we were able to figure who to contact. My daughter was the tiniest thing and had fallen asleep on the bus only to wake up and notice she had missed her stop. I got her back by picking her up at the school 45 minutes later once the but had dropped off everyone on the rural route we are on.
She continues to be who I look to as a role model. There is never a negative word from her.. even when there could be. She is alway there when I need her. Anyway, Ann and her hubby were away last week and thanked me with the gift and note below.
