November 26 … I woke up singing, “Just a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down …” I can’t really say why … just did. The song took on more meaning as I had to give my students the district benchmark test on their first day back from a holiday! I offered them a sweet treat to help soften the blow. Of course, in the bigger scheme of things, I have had many blessings to sweeten the challenging events of life!
November 27 … So while my students might not be so grateful for the district benchmark test, I find myself grateful today for it. A quiet testing environment has given me a bit of “extra” time to prepare for these final weeks of the semester.
November 28 … Finally found the radio station playing Christmas music full time! OK … call me sappy or what … but I love, love, love Christmas music! So grateful today for Christmas Joy!
November 29 … Yikes! so thankful that the “full moon” comes around only once a month! Surely that’s the reason my students were so squirrel-ly yesterday! Maybe peace and a little learning will reign for the remainder of the weeks between holidays! Ha!
November 30 … 3 months ago we signed a contract to have an in-ground pool installed in our back yard! The pool is built, the equipment delivered, the water is in … and now … yea! The pool is done. So grateful for this amazing luxury … and for living in a climate where I can enjoy the water much of the year!
My 30 days of recording grateful thoughts comes to a close today … but my prayer is that I will continue to grow and mature in giving thanks! I am one very blessed lady!
