I am loving my class and my job! Nope, it's not perfect, but then again, is anything? Yes, my body is beyond tired. Sometimes, I wonder if I'm way too old to be confined with 75 adolescents, but then again, I'm having way too much fun.
Yes, I could cheerully take an axe to the copiers. VERY CHEERFULLY! They may well be the death of me someday. But, I absolutely refuse to let a machine take control of my life.
No, not all of our books have arrived. But, I can well teach for several days without that math workbook. If I can't, I shouldn't have a job.
Yes, there are issues in my life...some big ones. But, many people have far bigger ones. In the grand scheme of things, I am blessed many times over.
I'm not a pollyanna, never have and never will be. But, neither do I want to be a constant grumbler and complainer. My word for this year has been abundance. I haven't always remembered to focus on it, but I've done far better. I still have a ways to go.
So, here's to "Thankful Thursday" and for some of the "greats" in my life.
Enormous yellow sunflowers with eye popping patterns and colors. How can you not smile?
Sunsets over the channel...such gorgeous red light in that sky!
Martini drinking mermaids in store front windows...
Stolen hours of beach magic with my husband, and
the colors, smells, textures, and tastes of the farmers' market goodies.
Life really is good.
