Thank You: to Teachers of Life

We all have people that enter our lives as "Teachers" and friends. People that have change our lives profoundly and helped us to grow... sometimes even despite ourselves.....
This is a Thank you to the "Teachers" of the world. One dear dear friend in particular was the catalyst for this heartfelt Thank You.

Thank You!
A teacher of great passion
And wonderful at heart
Your energy's contagious
It made it easy to start
To want to look inside
Go on just take that chance
To want to go explore
And dance that inner dance
Your guidance and direction
Just help to go along
Until the students ready
To sing their inner song
I thank you as a teacher
And as a dear dear friend
I thank you for your patience
Love and Light to you I send
May you be blessed forever
Your loved ones also too
And may your hands be guided
with a Light that's always true.

You are all teachers in your own right. And for that, I Thank You!

Neat, Nina. We all have those in our lives---who have touched us in certain ways. Some are teachers; some preachers; and some just friends.

Both George and I have been teachers in past... I loved teaching ---and had several teachers who made a huge influence on my life.

Thanks for the great poem, Nina.

Teachers of all kinds, but especially school teachers, can certainly use some more thanking. When you get a chance, I invite you and your readers to check out this brief video -- -- it's the "aha moment" experienced by one teacher when her dedication and meaningful work were recognized in a very special way. I think you'll enjoy it.

I love teachers. There is always at least one person who was extra special and taught you something valuable. You never forget them.
