I'm not sure if any Brownstown Middle School staff or parents read my blog, but I just had to share this.

Leslie's memory comes and goes, but one thing she has had NO recollection of is teaching at BMS or being a Spanish teacher.  None at all.  Granted, we pretty much anticipated this, being that she had only been teaching Spanish there for about 3 weeks before she collapsed.

Well!  The day before Mother's Day, we were out to eat with our mom, and she shared a very detailed story from when she was teaching there.  Not only did she remember for a split second, but she remembered detail.

She's incredible.

At Christmas time, Leslie never once mentioned shopping for Christmas gifts.  Leslie is an awesome, thoughtful gift-giver, and this was just another sad reminder to her family the parts of her that were gone. 

Months later, and she can't stop talking about getting mom a present for Mother's Day.  We texted today, and tomorrow, these two sisters are going SHOPPING!

Bits of her come back, piece by piece.
