Weekly Photo Challenge: Names
Names: I was given the name “Teresita.” I’ve been called “Teresa,” “Tessie,” “Teserita”—you get the drift—no one could properly pronounce it. My first grade teacher decided to nickname me “Terry” (which I spell “Tere”), and my father upon reading a note on one of my papers from the teacher, exclaimed, “Terry! Your name is not Terry! You tell your teacher that your name is Teresita!”
Daily Gratitude: sweeping and salting my elderly neighbor’s porch and seeing her smile; watching Downton Abbey reruns; a dusting of snow
