Long Restful Weekends

It’s not often people really impact your life. Dr. Phil says we only have under 10 influential people in our entire lives.

I spent ANZAC day catching up with one of THE most influential people in my life.

As a kid I was bullied mercilessly because I looked different. I can remember Mum being told by the school headmaster that I needed to work harder at fitting in. Look at me… do you really think there is any way in hell I would ‘fit in’ anywhere? (well besides at a Clarke family reunion.)

Anyways. Grade 5 saw a change in the school administration and Mrs. Lewis took the role of Deputy Principal.

I think it took her less than a month… perhaps not even a week to get those bullies to pull their heads in.

She single-handedly did what my parents hadn’t been able to do. She taught me I was worthy. I had a right to be happy and I deserved to have friends.

The most wonderful moment of the day was showing her my jewelery, and her showing me some of hers.

I tell you, she does some breath-taking pieces, and she is hard pressed keeping up with demand… which, looking at the pendants she showed me, is completely understandable.

I picked her brain and she picked mine.

We also found time to wish my Mother in law a very happy ’21st’.

I think yesterday was the most fun I’ve had in quite a while.
