I am thankful for good girlfriends.
|Me with BFF and ME (two of several amazing ladies in my life)|
I have always been blessed with the most amazing girlfriends in the universe, and I wish I could impart to my ninth-grade girls just how important good friends are, that they should focus more on building and maintaining relationships with other girls and not spend so much time on the boys.
I am so grateful for the weekend that Alicia, BFF, Mindy, Tamara, and I were able to spend together. It was so much fun and so relaxing and just so nice being away from everything but great girls.
I wish it could happen more often.
I am thankful that Shaw asked me to coach tennis with him.
I also kind of want to play tennis...
I am so grateful for the kind, thoughtful students who I teach.
In the next class, I have one of my all-time favorite students, a young man that I had in class as a freshman, who I've gotten to know well through an extra-curricular organization, and who I have again as a senior. He is just so, so sweet, always giving me great big hugs and asking me how I'm doing. Today, I had to step out of the room for a minute right before the bell rang, and I found these notes sitting on my keyboard:
I know that they were from him, as I saw him hand one to another teacher as a "good luck" prior to her presentation in front of the staff.
I know that this particular student probably did not know that I was having a rough day, but the fact that he gave these little notes to me really affected me and truly put a smile on my face. And, it really reminded me of all of the awesome students with whom I work -- the reason that I do what I do.
What are you especially grateful for today?
