Different place, right time

Today was a very interesting day at work. Something happened that hasn't happened in a very long time... and it happened to me TWICE!!!

I received TWO "love" letters from students!!

"I sit around you,
and smell the smell of roses
Long dark hair
Deep blue eyes
One of a kind
and only I know why
Pretty on the inside
as well as on the out
An angel from above
and that's no doubt
different place, right time
different time, right place
I will never forget the smile on your face"

"Your life must be a maze because it seems like it is so hard for you to find me.
And you know that I really do adore you and love you. If I had one wish, that wish will be to be with you."

Now, knowing where I work, this is totally against the rules. We are drilled not to do anything to entice the offenders in any way. I have no idea what brought this on!!! AND I'm old enough to be these two students' mother!

Hey whattya expect its jail I'm sure they dont see too many women there so naturally they are gonna latch on to the first woman they think is showin g an interest but in all actuality is just doing her job

There are a lot of women there, but so seem to latch on to the ones that can relate to them on some level. I just treat them with respect. I tell them I'm there to educate them, not to judge them.

I'm sure you have no problem with your boundaries...otherwise you wouldnt' still be there. Most of these men probably have not had that many nurturing female role models in their lives, and the only way they can process it is to try to fit it into the behaviours they know. Most of their categories are pretty black and white..either love, sex, hate or ....is there anything else?? I don't know.

Enjoy it. It still means you're touching lives in a great way.

Thanks moonlight! I know what you mean. Looking at the environment where these men came from, it's not a pretty picture. Unfortunately, a lot of them will be going back to that same situation.

They just see the beauty inside and out! Do be careful though!

Not a problem Angel! Although after this past week, I don't think you have anything to worry about. They were complete children...Soon to be my next post!

On the surface, it might look like a breach in the rules... but reading between the lines I see the same message from both... I see two people who have the utmost respect for you, and realize that what you do is important to them. I see two people thanking you, in their own way, for accepting them for who they are despite their present circumstances.

Oh, and thanks for including me in your Network of Friends... Any friend of Spunky's is a friend of mine, too!

Thanks Todd! I know that they both meant well in their notes. I just come to work and try my best to reach them. Sometimes it works, other times it doesn't. But I can't give up!

Even though it's against the rules it still has to feel awesome to receive the love letters from your students.

You're right smile! Usually the notes I get are sexual in content. Wish I still had some of them..they would have made great posts! lol
