I've been in a really bad mood lately. Chalk it up to the endless grey weather. So I felt like I needed to remember the things that make this work so joyful. Anyway, thank you:
Class student mom MP for telling me she thinks I'm the only teacher at my rink who really cares about every student. I don't think it's true, but it was nice to hear.
NB's mom, for understanding both loyalty and bullsh*t.
Miss E, for having the most beautiful disposition, despite more barriers than anyone should have to deal with.
Mom A for telling me, in so many words, "I appreciate what you do! "
Sasha for fixing my ruined skates, and giving me the cleanest edges I've had in years.
Adam, for asking me to skate with him for 10 minutes the other day.
B, K, N for being coaches who take the garbage with a giant grain of salt, and remind me that I should too
My Friday Pre Alpha class, the craziest, most fun group of little girls you can imagine.
