I am grateful for Mimie today. Mimie is my french teacher. How she puts up with me is beyond me. I miss more lessons than I go to as life seems to always intervene. And when I do go it’s like I’ve never been before. I just can’t seem to retain anything. I blame my meds, I mean it couldn’t possibly be my age. The reason I am grateful for Mimie, is not that she is such a gracious teacher but because she is just the most wonderful person to spend an hour with. I am so grateful we met. Her view on life and the world is frank, refreshing and honest. And we laugh, boy do we laugh.
