Five for Friday

1.  Attending the funeral of my former teacher
Last week, I wrote about the teacher who inspired me.  I made the decision to attend her funeral.  I'm so grateful I did.  I got to see former teachers of mine (6th grade and high school).  Then I found out that Ms. Adams talked to other former teachers about how I was teaching in her hometown.  Such a humbling moment when I heard that.

2.  Seeing my aunt and cousin
I haven't seen my aunt in a couple of years and my cousin in about 4 or 5 years.  I miss them so it was great to see them even though it was for a couple of hours.  (They made a quick trip down to my area.)

3.  Comic relief

My students were cracking me up on Tuesday and Thursday.  I needed that comic relief.   Moments of praying over other students to being told he calls his grandma Mrs. ____ (meaning my name) and me grandma.  

4.  Boys almost finished with school

I have an almost third grader and an almost fifth grader in my house.  Where did time go?  The boys have had a fun finish to the year - splash pads, class picnics, and Young's Dairy.  Where can I sign up?  Actually I get to do something fun next week with my school - King's Island.  So it all works out in the end.

5.  Sunrises and Sunsets

It seems as though I'm always driving away from those beautiful creations.  (Actually in the morning I am.)  A glimpse of them remind me me there is beauty in this world.  A smile creeps onto my face and all is good for that moment.
