A little while ago, I posted a picture my student drew of me. It was a quick sketch, but I think it captured me quite well. I thought she showed quite a bit of talent and other people reacted quite positively towards it. You can view that picture here or on my instagram account–which is called todaysperfectmoment.
Today, she presented me with a new picture. She said that this one included me smiling. I think it is a great picture and I am happy to show it here. The only think I am a little less than happy about is that she omitted my forehead scar. While I haven’t always liked it, it has been part of my life since I was three. I got it when I fell onto the edge of the staircase while chasing my older sister. It required stitches and left a scar that has grown along with me. As I said, I haven’t always liked it, butI have come to accept it and felt that it was missing from the picture. I guess she wanted to show me in the best light possible. I think I would rather she have given me more hair.
Obviously, this qualifies as Today’s Perfect Moment. I think I am going to frame it and then a year or so from now hang it on my wall.
