    Awww that gave me goosebumps and I was holding my breath at parts. I don’t have any experience with Nuns. I was born in a Catholic hospital and my mom who had just turned 18 said she had a horrible experience with how stern they were. They didn’t seem to care that she was frightened – only making her feel bad for her ‘situation’ and back then no family could be in the room. I enjoyed your story.

    I’m sure it did.

    It sounds like one of those instances where it hurt her more than it hurt you. I love that a teacher holds a special place in your heart so many years later.

    Oh my gosh. That gave me a lump in throat. A person’s compassion always comes through. So glad that she made a difference in your life and the other children she taught.

    I so enjoyed your post. What a wonderful woman you had for a teacher! I was touched when you said Sister Mary had tears in her eyes when she slapped your hand. That’s love. And love does change lives.
