|Max, Teacher Betsy, Sharon|
Anyhow--to make a long story short, through Facebook, I caught up with a couple of my favorite students. Max and Sharon were 'sweethearts' in high school. After they graduated and when I left Knoxville, I lost total contact with them. This past weekend, they came to Crossville to camp---so we met back up --after 43 years...
What JOY for me!!!! This couple did get married at age 18/19, and are still very much in love after all of these years. They have 2 married sons and I think, four grandchildren now. Both Max and Sharon are retired and live in Maryville, TN. They are such wonderful people --and I'm so glad that I could catch back up with them.
They were so complimentary of me ---and what a difference I had made in their lives. That makes me feel so good --since none of us know how we can affect others as we go through life. I do know that I loved teaching ---and tried to do a good job sharing my deep love of music with all that I taught.
The funny part now is that I'm only about 9 years older than they are... As their teacher, I'm sure they thought that I was much older back then!!!!! Isn't that a hoot??????
Thanks Max and Sharon for the wonderful visit!!!!! I am so proud of the great Christian people you became. You two have obviously done alot to make a difference in the lives of others. God Bless You both.
|Dawn and Jeff|
Dawn is 'everything' a mother could ever ask for as a bride for her son. These two are like George and me----they are good for each other and compliment each other.
The picture above is one of MANY pictures they made to use as 'engagement photos'... Isn't it a great picture???? I'm sure I've mentioned this many times, but their wedding will be in October!!!!
Have a great day ---and thanks to so many of you for finding my two surprises (the heart and the teeth) in my last post... I often wonder how many people actually 'read' my blog --and how many just scan it. (I hate to admit it, but I have been guilty of scanning blogs too on occasion when I am in a hurry!!!! ha)
