Re-Thinking the Holidays
Fearing that no one will read my posts when my Blah-spirit-of CHISTMAS
kicks in... I do want to say what I LOVE about Christmas time.
The fact that my family and friends are RELAXED and are enjoying the spirit of this holiday time.
I have a lot of teacher friends. Most of them are very experienced teachers who have been doing it a long time. They are now doing what they were trained to do- but they've had to add an enormous amount of paperwork and data collection to now PROVE that they were good teachers from the beginning.
To this I say-- Love you all! I appreciate you. You are an angel to these children, a parent, a nurse, a best friend, a confidant, a big sister, a grandma, and someone they can count on. They miss you when you are out sick- and you never complain that their little hands and hacking is what makes you sick.
I talked to about five art teachers yesterday at the art show I was in. Each came up to my display and said they had heard I was no longer teaching and asked how I was doing. I didn't go into the details, but told them I was sick,
but making art and poor.
Thank you, Amy, Tess, Lindsay, Michelle and Alice for making me feel like I am still one of the gang.

My daughter will be home from college soon too. This adds to my pleasure.
I have a goal of a better future with my 20-something daughters.
