ADDENDUM: message from Abigail...
I did not expect the text I got last night,
The text that had me with the "Gro Cud"
(cajun for lump in throat, wanting to cry)
TEXTS FROM ABIGAIL:
I READ YOUR POST ON YOUR BLOG AND
I REALLY LIKED IT!!
I AM SO GLAD THAT YOU CAME BACK TO
TEACH OUR CONFIRMATION CLASS
BECAUSE HONESTLY BEFORE YOU
WERE THERE I NEVER REALLY THOUGHT
ABOUT GOD, I PRAYED BUT IT WAS MORE
BECAUSE MY PARENTS TOLD ME TO
AND I NEVER REALLY TRIED TO
UNDERSTAND WHAT I WAS SAYING,
BUT SINCE YOU HAVE BEEN TEACHING
US I'VE GROWN CLOSER TO GOD THAN
EVER AND I AM SO THANKFUL FOR THAT,
I DON'T EVEN LIKE TO THINK ABOUT HOW
AFTER CONFIRMATION WE WON'T SEE YOU
EVERY SUNDAY ANYMORE
ANYWAYS I JUST WANTED TO TELL YOU
THANK YOU BECAUSE YOU REALLY DID
MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN MY LIFE!!!
(: LOVE YOU MRS. LILLY!!!
Oh my Honey! U making me cry!
Best text I've gotten in a long time! Love u
and who knows, maybe you can be my
assistant next year!
I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO DO THAT!!!
I JUST WANTED YOU TO KNOW THAT
YOU REALLY HAVE IMPACTED MY LIFE
IN A POSITIVE WAY BECAUSE WITHOUT YOU
I MAY HAVE NEVER REALLY HAD A GOOD
RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND WANTED TO
PRAY FOR ME NOT BECAUSE
SOMEONE TOLD ME TO PRAY!
AND YOU ARE JUST ONE OF MY
FAVORITE PEOPLE EVER(:
Oh sweets, I feel the same about you!
This is not a brag blog as I need to say that
none of this could happen without me praying
for the Big Man to give me the words to
share with these children, His children.
Not only do I now know I will be teaching
for many more years because of Abigail's texts
but I also now have an assistant next year,
Look forward to more years together,
