I'm the Old Babysitter

Last night at the ice cream stand I kept looking at the girl taking our order. Finally I asked her name and when she said Allie I was floored. I used to babysit her when she was in 4th grade and now she's going to be a junior in high school. She told me what she and her sisters are up to; I told her I was married. We shared memories and I was told she remembers me everytime she's driving and she almost hits a bird. It seems that all those years ago I was taking them somewhere, almost hit a bird and freaked out a little bit. This is the number one reason she remembers me.
I'm so honored to have impacted her life.
