Great Quote...

My mentor teacher told me this quote the other day and I totally thought it was worth sharing!

"You can tell a lot about a person's character by how they handle these three things:

  1. Tangled Christmas Lights,
  2. Lost Luggage and
  3. Rainy Days."

"Count Your Many Blessings"


So I am counting my blessings...

1.  Casey!  He made me breakfast this morning!!!
2.  Casey!  He washed my car last night and left a love note written on a napkin inside.
3.  Casey!  He cleaned up the living room.
4.  Casey!  He vacuumed!!! :D
5.  Casey!  He wrote a love note and put it on our fridge.
6.  Casey!  He tells me stories at bedtime (no, I am not too old!)
7.  Casey!  He washes the silverware as soon as we are through so it won't get old.
8.  Casey!  He made the bed this morning after I left in a frantic rush for school.
9.  Casey!  He gives amazing hugs!
10.  ♥ C ♥ A ♥ S ♥ E ♥ Y ♥ ! ♥   He loves me forever!!

10 months ago was the most special day of my life!  I am so eternally grateful to be able to count Casey as my blessing!  Happy 10 Month Anniversary!

I have a plan...

It is late so this must be brief... but I have a plan to try out with my challenging class.  I am going to start acting like they are my favorite class.  I am going to love everything about them from their questions to random comments to interesting situations.  I am going to put the quote from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe into practice. "Treat a man as he appears to be, and you make him worse.  But treat a man as if he were what he potentially could be, and you make him what he should be."  I am going to apply this to my class.  I am going to make it work!  I will write about the (hopefully positive) results later!
