    Mrs. Motley was my Mrs. Abbott. She lived in the same neighborhood as my Grandparents. We went to the same church. So I got to keep her in my life. Would go see her in the nursing home every week but with covid and now the weather. I can only talk to her on the phone or get updates from her daughter.

    Okay, this was EVERYTHING! I don’t know either of them, but I am smiling and crying simultaneously. I’ve been watching and sharing Quinta’s videos forever and always knew she’d be successful. Additionally, I think we all have our own Mrs. Abbott’s that made a difference in our lives. I am so happy she’s able to retire knowing she was such a positive influence on her students. Jimmy, I think I’m going to need a tissue too!

    Omgeeee!!!!!!! And Jimmy is a REAL ONE for that blessing! Teachers deserve blessings. When she actually retires, they’re probably just going to give her a paper weight or a gold pen!
