Sometimes, the best teachers aren't teachers at all. They come in all sizes, shapes, and ages. This one came from the middle of Iowa, in the mid-1950's, to fix roller skates. Oh, the things he taught for a lifetime of treasures.
We teach. We learn. We give of our time and our skills to those who skate into our lives. We don't always know when those moments of teaching take place or how long they will last. For a little girl in the middle of Iowa during the 1950's this teaching from a gentle old man has lasted a lifetime.
Mr. Furman never had much to say and he didn't teach in front of a class. To a little girl, his reticence was golden and Mrs. Furman's glasses of lemonade sweetened the summer afternoons in his accounting office with sips of kindness, patience, observation, and the ageless gift of time.
TIME, the most important part of teaching anything in life and something we must all pass on to our children and grandchildren.
