Wordless Wednesday

Here are a few morning photos from the other morning just before (and after)  the sun rose. I took the long way to work and then realized I had forgotten my phone.  Oops. But  I wasn’t too disappointed to have to see these sights again in a different light. The deer were too cute…like they were standing at attention or something…and then they disappeared into the woods. I guess they had places to be and things to do, too. ThankfulRead more

gratitude

A few images of the past week…always lots to be thankful for. Some affirmation for  and growth in students. Some affirmation (and hopefully growth) for me. Some walks by the river with a loved one.

Another year, the package contained General Foods International Coffee…Irish Creme flavor of course. That was my favorite at the time. She knew that because for a year and a half I went to college outside of Philadelphia and was about an hour fromRead more

Thankful Thursday

Ugh. Where to begin. It’s February 15th, the day after Valentine’s Day. As sweet as yesterday was, today started with how it ended last night…with the news about the 17 lost. School shooting. Ugh.  It began for so many with fears and tears and senseless loss. Tough to be thankful for that. And the Keurig coffee maker is being persnickety. That seemingly small and shallow detail didn’t help with the start of my day either. I went into school andRead more
