    I have a hard time asking for help. I'll help anyone, I'll do anything that's needed, give anything that could help, but I have trouble asking for me. I need this, though. I don't want to give a lot of details, but a little back story, a couple of years ago we lost one of our teachers, a dear, sweet lady. There was a student and his/her parent that made this dear lady's last days hell on Earth. The parent didn't believe she was as ill as she was told, so she even went to the hospital to prove her point. (She was wrong.) The teacher we lost was very dear to me. This year I am teaching that student and have already had a meeting with that parent. I'm having to really push myself to put the past aside and deal with the now (because there are already problems). I'm struggling, though, because I know what they put her through. I'm not sure if I'm explaining this well, but I need the strength to put that aside and to forgive....whewww ok, maybe not forgive because that put a stone in my stomach, but to put it past it.

    Oh, Christy: if that isn't the hardest thing to do, it ranks right up there with the hardest. Hugs to you.

    Thank you all. Daisy, you stated it perfectly. That's the exact thing I should have prayed for - to handle it professionally. That I can live with.

    Thank you all. I know forgiveness isn't something I'm ready for, so professionalism and that polite spine of steel is what I'm working on.
