And Then I Cried

When people tell you nice things, does it ever make you want to cry?

Well, that's what happened to me the night I went to the reunion. 

When I first met her, she was only about eighteen.  Working in a satellite office of mine as a teller, there was just something about her that made me know she would be the right one for the job.  And I was right.



Watching her grow and hearing about her promotions within the banking industry, I was always so proud of her.  Today, she heads several divisions in a bank.

The night of our reunion, she thanked me.

Thinking about our conversation while driving home, I cried. 

She blossomed beautifully, has two sons, one of whom is called
JP

It is a good feeling when your instincts about someone prove you were right down the road. A proud reflection of this woman's accomplishments.

How wonderful that she remembered your part in her progress and thought to say 'thank you'. I can imagine your tears were tears of joy when considering her kindness at the reunion.
