Thanks & Giving


As we enter this week of Thanks and Giving, I thought it would be a great time to sit down and blog about all the things I'm thankful for...because after all...there are many things on my thankful list. And then I found the Thankful Linky Party at What the Teacher Wants! First off, I too am thankful for Saturdays and Sundays. I love waking up to the quiet morning and sipping my coffee while catching up on my Kindle read of the moment. I feel like I wait all week to just sit still, and my body cherishes that quiet time where no one needs me and I know everything is taken care of for the moment. This morning I felt the warm sun on my face and it brought instant peace to what has seemed like a crazy life lately.

I love my family and my amazing
husband who puts up with my crankiness and crazy ideas (and I with his). I am so thankful and excited to see my sister this Thursday and spend 4 days with her. I am thankful for my mom and dad and their unconditional love and support. And I can't forget my Rocky who greets me every morning with kisses and a wagging tail.

 I am thankful for my group of students this year and that I have the opportunity to work with them and make a difference in their lives. As frustrating and exhausting as it can be, I know that my job makes a difference.  I can't imagine building a career that doesn't touch others. I feel very blessed and very thankful as this holiday season approaches!

What are you thankful for? Link up with Rachelle from What the Teacher Wants at Thankful Linky Party.

Thanks Rachelle! I too love the Hunger Games and can't wait for the movie. That's what I read on my Kindle this morning with my cup of coffee!

It is definitely exhausting and sometimes I forget how much those little ones really need our love and support! =) Thanks for sharing this post!
