Today I wanted to write something different than what i usually do. I wanted to write a letter to someone who had a huge impact on my life and i don’t think she ever really knew how much she meant to me. Marge looked after the kids of St.Marys primary school after class was over until our parents picked us up (in afterschool care program). In grand tyra style, when we moved it was quite abrupt and i didnt properly say goodbye because i assumed that we would see eachother very soon. But i lost touch with her. So i dont konw if she will ever see this letter, but i need to write it.
How are you? Its been a long time since we last talked or saw eachother. The last time you saw me i was a little 5th grader in a checked dress and short hair. Remember? I pretty much still look the same except im a little taller, i have longer hair, more insecurities and dimples. No boyfriend, i promise. Im in 11th grade now. and my parents are divorced. thats pretty much whats happened since we last saw eachother.
I miss you looking after us at after school care. We were quite the colorful bunch. Those were the best years of my life. I really miss those days of coming to after school care. it was like my second home. There were a lot of memories made there. I remember Stephanie and i used to get into fights all the time and you’d have to break it up. It was funny because towards the end of my years with you, Steph and i became really good friends.
Anyway, i guess ill get to the point of my letter. I just wanted to say thank-you. You taught me so much that i still carry on to today. You were the best role model someone could ever have. You taught me how to like myself. and how to be a kind person. That’s hard to find now-a-days. You made me feel at home and comfortable in my skin. When i get sad, i always go back to those days when i had you to come to after a long day at school. You were the best councillor, teacher and second mother i could ever ask for. Thank you so much for giving me all these life lessons that mean so much to me. i could never repay you for those years…
