A Moment in Time







He showed up at the door to school just as I was leaving this past week - with his "gang".

No one wanted to let him in.  I was turning the corner and only saw him out of the corner of my eye.  I stopped and opened the door and this tough kid and his gang tumbled into the hallway.  

"Hey Miss - remember me???"  I laughed and said "how could I forget you?"  We chatted for a couple of minutes this gangly tough kid - who was - if truth be told - the thorn in my side for the years we shared the same school hallways.

He (and the gang) walked me to my car.  As I got in my car - this tough kid said "You were always the best Miss !!!" And he turned and walked away leaving me with a big smile on my face and a warm feeling inside.
