Touching You, Touches Me

As a teacher I cnstantly think to myself if I have touched a child’s life in a positive way. Yesterday a former student visited me and she reminded me of how little things that I may not necessarily see as important can mean the world or make a difference in a life. She did say that she loved the projects we did in class and enjoyed me as a teacher. That little comment from her, innocent and all, meant so much to me. Sometimes we need confirmation that we are doing great in our respective careers and I’m grateful that I am able to touch and change lives.

Being Thankful

Today as I was preparing to go to mid-week bible study, I had my brother doing a few things for me. As I watched him, I felt the need to just say I LOVE YOU. He does so much for me and I am so thankful for him. Not only am I thankful for him and his help, but for the rest of my family also. They do so much for me and I’m thankful for them daily.

My Father’s Birthday


Today is my father’s birthday. I say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to him and wish him many more. I hope he has enjoyed this day and it has been a blessing to him.

My father and I have a really weird relationship, in my opinion. We don’t interact with one another as the rest of the family does and it may be due to resentment on my part. As a child my father embarassed me and I have not gotten over it. I also think he treats me differently than the other children in the family. Don’t get me wrong, I do love him, I just wish we had a better relationship. Anyway, today is his day, so he’ll be right all day. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DADDY.
