A Letter of Gratitude

Who deserves a thank you from you? Someone who currently impacts your life…or someone from long ago?

I had many educators who made a positive impact on me, though none more than my high school English teacher, Susan Lawrence-Rich. I could go on and on about what I learned from her, oh so many years ago. Suffice it to say, she fostered my love of language and writing-two of my passions, even today.

After continuous encouragement from a dear friend, I finally, after almost 30 years, penned a letter to Mrs. Rich.  Putting my thoughts to paper was such a joy, and I was surprised by how much I had to share with her.

Yesterday’s trip to the  mailbox led me to a delightful discovery! I received correspondence from Mrs. Rich to thank me for my letter, impeccably timed as she nears retirement.

Just wondering if there’s anybody who deserves a letter of gratitude from you? Why are you waiting?
