A note from Mavis

So on the last day at Mawewe high school, I asked my kids if they would write a little thank you note to my friends who helped me to come there and teach.  They sat there for a good fifteen minutes, looking a bit nervous at writing in English, but as I read their words, I was the one who was thankful beyond words... This note from Mavis made my eyes tear up and I scooped her up in a huge hug and we both smiled the biggest smiles and our eyes shone as we looked at each other with gratitude.  I look forward to seeing Mavis accomplish her dreams, and I have a special feeling that we will be a part of each other's lives from a while to come.
