Blessings

I couldn't let the day go without saying Happy Mother's Day to all my girlies out there! I know that not all of you have been blessed with children of your own yet, but I can promise you not one of you has not made a difference in the life of a child.


Sarah, I will never forget you telling your children that you are their school mom! I can promise you that your students were all so blessed to have you as their school mommy. I know that some of those darlings that you had at SCE got more love from you then they did at home and I will never doubt that they carry a special place in their hearts for you.

I know this day was very difficult for many of you for many different reasons. I pray that God was with you. Know that I thought and prayed for each of you today all day long. I hope you felt it!
Last but not least! Thank you momma for being such a blessing in my life! I could not ask for a more wonderful mom. I hope and pray that Ashlynn will love and adore me as much as I love and adore you. You are my best friend! I know that I can only hope to be half the mom you are. I am so extremely blessed that Ashlynn gets to have such a close relationship to her Nonnie! I won't lie I get super jealous when she cries for her Nonnie instead of her mommy, but I know she will be a greater woman for having you in her daily life.

Oh P.S. Marshal did good! Look at this super cute purse he picked out all by himself! (Melissa, Marshal is available for purse picking out lessons if you want to send Daniel next time you are in town-HA-HA! Love you Daniel)

Oh and he will be upset if I don't mention the very stylin sunglasses he got me too! I love them even if I didn't put a picture on!

Rain, Rain Go Away

You don't realize how much you depend on something until it isn't there. I miss the sun sooooo much! I know we need the rain to make our flowers beautiful and trees grow, but I seem to be so grumpy when I don't see the sun for a couple of days.

Marshal is on his way back home today from picking up a new fire truck in Atlanta. I honestly cannot imagine driving a fire truck long distance like that, but I think he kind of gets a kick out of it. I am a little jealous because he got to stop at one of the best barbecue restaurants in the world right outside of Memphis. You guys know how I am about my food. Nothing gets me more excited than some good food! Oh well I am trying to get over it because our wonderful PTO bought us lunch from Honey Baked Ham today and it was pretty darn good too!

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week this Week by the way! Teachers really are special people. I am not just saying that because I am one, but seriously it takes a lot of heart to be a teacher. I have had one of the toughest years this year as far as my class goes. I have several sever behavior problems mixed with a lot of boys and it has been a very difficult 158 days. However, everyday I am able to pick myself up and go to work with a smile on my face because I absolutely whole heartily love my students. I am really not trying to make this a pat on my back story. I read my friend Avie's blog right before this post and to see the relationships she has with her kiddos is so heartwarming. So to all the Teachers out there of any kind (Sunday School, Preschool, etc.) Thank you for loving our kids!
