Well, on Tuesday, September 30, 2014 I turned 55. So, after work I headed to Ross to join the club they have. On Tuesdays they offer people 55 and over a 10% discount. I bought a pair of pajama pants and slippers. I saved a whole $1.50. Yippee!!!
A scripture that I came across in my reading of the book Love Life and See Good Days by Emily Freeman. This is perfect quote that goes along with the theme for the year. Let me tell you that looking for the good side of things has made a big difference in my life. It is truly amazing. I might have to keep this again for next year.
I have started to realized how very blessed I am. I haven't had a perfect life but my life has been perfect for me and what I needed. My heart is really full and I just wanted to express it and give my thanks to God.
Last night, a little after 3AM, we awoke to a lot of shaking, rolling and noise. We were having an earthquake. We didn't think it would stop. We got up to survey the damage and found things that had fallen over but nothing was ruined. It made me stop and be grateful for what we have. Our house withstood the quake and we were okay. So glad that people have knowledge about how to build things to with stand it. This is just hard to explain but I am really grateful. (we weren't very far from the epicenter.)
Today was my first day back to school after a nice and relaxing summer break. The day went well. The kids are so sweet. (I teach 1st grade) I had 2 excellent parents that came off and on throughout the day to help. That was so nice. I am grateful that I have good parents who are willing and able to help. Here's to a great year.
