Imprint

slol 2013

I bumped into my daughter’s third grade teacher.  We periodically meet up.  I told her my daughter was doing great.  She had her middle and high school kids with her.  She said to them, “Do you remember who my favorite student was?”  They both nodded and said my daughter’s name.  She said this is her mom.  She then went on to say that my daughter had given her a picture of herself when she was in third grade and it is still on her refrigerator.   That was eleven years ago! I told her I would ask my daughter to send an updated picture.

During our conversation she was very animated talking about my daughter and said wonderful things about her.  I know she is a great kid (adult), but  what I love the most is that she has left an imprint on the hearts of others.

  1. Imprint is so descriptive a word! May your daughter continue to leave her imprint upon all the many lives she touches and may you always be proud!

    It is so gratifying as a parent to hear the imprint your child made on someone. That’s a testament to her upbringing.
