Happiness In The Form of Words
“You are my new role model.”, as spoken from a young elementary school girl. She had been moved by a presentation she sat thru that involved me speaking of battery, bullies, bad people and pain. The second half of the presentation I proudly spoke of redemption, regaining strength, self-worth and self-love. Who would have thought that an elementary school age girl could see clearly pass my past and into my future. “Me, a role model?” I silently thought, though you would not have notice my inner questioning because of my outward large grin. Displaying nearly all of my teeth, I stooped down beside the beautiful brunette haired girl, my face pressed against her and my eyes wide with a twinkle that only I knew the reasons why. Lights, camera, captured, our picture was taken. I am happy. This young Girl Scout had just changed my life. I wonder how old she will be when she discovers it.
