Interviewing: Hope

Hope was such an education for me.  She showed me how pleasant & respectful a well-educated young adult could be.  She and her family have placed in me a goal to bring up my own children with her kind of mutual respect & fun-loving attitude.  
Fun fact: Hope took the pictures that I now use for KnittedHome’s online presence, including my profile & banner picture with my then-cell phone.

Hope

I was 10.

– Did you think I was a nice or mean babysitter when I watched you?  Any particular reason?  Do you still think I’m nice/mean?

Whenever you think you are being patient enough, be more patient.
