I'm supposed to be teaching you.
You watch me and mimic.
And it's good.
So very good!
But you see... I might be teaching you about how to become a teacher... but I don't think those things are what you are learning the most about.
No... the times that we just get to sit and talk, I think are opening your eyes more than the teaching.
You are learning about life.
I am getting to share my hard earned knowledge of this world.
You look at me in awe and ask, "How do you come with a smile on your face every day?"
Without even thinking, I reply, "Because you have to let go of the things you can not change. I can't change that my mom is dead. I can't change that my husband cheated... and so I have to let them go."
You have to know though... seeing you digest what I just said taught me how far I have come... and I needed that realization.
So... even though I am supposed to be teaching you - Thank you for teaching me.
Happy 6th Birthday, Riley!
