Today started out as a normal day of teaching my scheduled students. Around noon I received a call from one of my students asking if she could drop by this afternoon and bring a friend also a student. I said sure, excited for their visit.
One of these ladies writes poetry and stated when she came in that she had written me a poem, She started to hand it to me and I asked her to read it to us and this is what she read:
“Sewing ‘N More”
Who is she? This lady of the day,
Her name is Sherry and I must say.
What a feeling of comfort she gives,
I know in her heart the Lord lives.
When you walk in the room she smiles,
Always confident after many miles.
The many talents of a true teacher,
Flows easily, you can always reach her.
Just give her a call, she is always there,
To answer each question I can fare.
No problem is too much for me to ask,
Whether something in the future or in the past.
If you need encouragement or whatever,
Just let her know, she’ll help you be better.
Expressing an inquiry or not.
Choice between alternatives at the top.
What is she? This lady of the day,
And when I say lady to always play.
She can work rings around the most,
Even though she will never boast.
From her background, she arose,
A great woman from her head to her toe.
Welcome in her home, door always open,
Such kind, sweet words are always spoken.
So many talents that can’t be hidden,
She has confidence and patience not forbidden.
If ask about a problem of sewing or life,
You can bet your bottom dollar she is right.
Where is she? This lady of the day,
She is always there for you always.
Wherever she is she will always come,
Into her home to have some fun.
Her husband is equally great,
Whatever need you have for your sake?
Just call his name and he will be there,
Whether cutting, repairing, he is so fair.
You can wonder how some people meet,
And become the kind of couple you seek.
To be together and have no strife,
They hope to be together for the rest of their life.

To my good friends, Sherry and Mike
This was so touching not a dry eye in the house, not even hubby who is also mentioned. Sometimes I wonder if what I do makes a difference. I think I received my answer.
Not only does Barbara do a nice job quilting but she is also a wonderful poet. Just had to share.
Hope you had a touching moment in your journey today.
