Webster’s Dictionary defines the word teacher as “one that teaches.”
The word teaches is defined as, “to cause to know something : to cause to know how.”
I firmly believe that in each friendship a person has, you have a teacher.
You are taught things without even really knowing at that moment, you receive counsel and feedback, you grow to admire the person as well as the many things they show you.
Even though I am older and more experienced in some things, I always felt like the teacher in this friendship until this past year.
You’ve taught me how to love even when I did not want to open up, showed me what it is to be kind and forgiving, displayed how much devotion one can give to their family, how much passion one can have, how self sacrificing it is to put another persons needs before your own, how much devotion and dedication you give to our Grand Creator, how giving of your time you spend for Jehovah and the organization and above all, you have taught me how to be patient with myself and all the circumstances I may find myself in.
Thank you for the lessons you’ve taught me, for the year that you have shared with me, for the memories that we made, and for the promises you have kept.
The student and best friend,
