Monday: I celebrate a day off. It was relaxing and quiet. I enjoyed a yummy cup of coffee while I watched one of my all time favorite movies, Annie!
Tuesday: I celebrate student bloggers. Students started blogging today! This is one of my favorite days of the year! I love watching them figure out the blog's dashboard and how to maneuver around. I love reading their posts and comments. It's such a fun and exciting time in our class! (They will soon be ready for the world to read!)
Wednesday: I celebrate my church family. Wednesday nights I attend a class at church. Life is so busy, I almost didn't sign up, but this hour is one of the best of the week. The leader of the class was celebrating his 81st birthday...so I brought cookies & brownies. We all indulged in some sweets while learning about our spiritual gifts.
Thursday: I celebrate help. I asked for it today and I allowed it. The weather has created perfect conditions for a migraine, so I asked for a sub for my last class. I went home and slept. Thank you for substitute teachers and helpful deans and thoughtful students who were extra kind because I didn't feel well.
Friday: I celebrate writing. Writing is the outlet that helps my world make sense. My notebook is like a warm blanket that brings me such comfort. I figured out some big things this week in my writing. I even wrote a poem about it yesterday. I'd love writing to become something at which I make money, but if it never does...it's enough just as it is.
Saturday: I celebrate dinner with friends to celebrate a year of gratitude! I celebrate Bella getting to work with an amazing trainer today too. Busy Saturday today!
Extra celebration: I have made final plans to attend NCTE and ALAN in November. I can't wait!!!
