What To Say
Work is going well. We have a new principal this year and she has been really nice. As a staff we have needed time to heal after the last principal we had. It is amazing how the feeling has gotten better on our campus. Class sizes went up this year and it is amazing how much difference 7 kids can make. But, I love all my kids and I don't know who I would send away if the class sizes went down.
I have been thinking about how powerful words are. The can really lift you up or really knock you down. Sometimes I think words hurt far more than some physical pain. I also think it is amazing how we have taken words that once used to be something nice and have turned them into derogatory words. Gay is one word that comes to mind.
My church is a big part of my life as are the people who are there. My one friend from church is in the hospital after suffering a stroke. Things aren't looking well right now for her and that makes me sad. She is such a wonderful person and has helped me grow as person this last year or so. She is always thinking and helping others. We work together in Relief Society and I feel a big load on my shoulders without her. Her name is Arva and please pray for her.
Friends are a valuable resource. I have always been blessed with good friends in my life. I am so glad of that. I am so grateful for technology that keeps us close even when we are not together. If I ever get rich, I am going to have a party where we can all be together in the same place. It is kind of sad that I have more friends on the internet than I do in person.
Well, I guess that is enough for now. I am amazed about how many thoughts on different things I have. What are some of yours?
