Thanksgiving
« on: May 08, 2010, 12:30:14 PM »
Dear folks,

I am writing from our university Commencement ceremony and reporting that I've been given the Faculty Member of the Year award.

It's unbelievable - I really did not do anything special, but that's how our students voted.

Thank God and thank you all for your kind support! (And for bearing with me on this board - I know it's not easy:))

You're such a sweetheart, I'm not surprised.   :)  You probably give your students extra care and encouragement, and that makes a difference. 

Congratulations!

Congratulations!
Many Years!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Glory to God!  May He continue to bless you richly!
