Day 3

A photo that makes you happy

Today's picture was quite a challenge for me. As I said yesterday, I'm a girl that loves pictures. Because of that there are TONS of pictures that make me happy. So I'm going to have more than just the one today. I'll do my best to narrow it down to just a few.

This one of my mom and me makes me happy. It captures a wonderful day and a wonderful moment between the two of us. She has been one of my best friends since I was a teenager and she remains so even despite the distance between us at the moment.

It was almost impossible for me to choose just one picture of the literally hundreds of pictures of my two little ones. They all make me happy. I have to say this is one of my favorites. I love it when they cuddle together. So adorable.

For obvious reasons, I love this picture. It makes me happy and I can't help but smile when I see it. It reminds me of not only a wonderful day, but a time when the future seemed great and full of hope. Looking at this picture reminds me to hold on to that hope for the future.

I'd love to hear what you have to say! Otherwise, I feel like I'm talking to a wall, much like I do with my students. :)

Weekend in San Diego

I was looking forward to this past weekend for a number of reasons and a number of weeks. First, it marked the beginning of my Spring Break. I cannot tell you how much of a needed break this is. To start the break off right, J.R. and I packed up our bikes (and some clothes) and headed down to San Diego for the weekend.

Saturday J.R. arranged for us to ride with a former coworker of his. We knew he is quite a bit slower than we are, but we simply wanted a nice, relaxing ride. What we did not know was that this would be the worst.ride.ever.
I want to preface things by saying I know things could have been far worse. I, also, know that if this was my worst ride, I should consider myself lucky. However, all that does not change how horribly catastrophic this ride turned out.
Problem #1 should have become very readily apparent the minute we started. J.R.’s former coworker chose the route. This man is not a very experienced rider, because of this he shys away from the road. That’s fine, however…

Surprises: The Good and the Bad

Solving Life's Questions

Today's prompt was:

If you couldn't answer with your job, how would you answer the question, 'what do you do'?


Now that is a difficult question. So often we put so much of who we are into the job we do. I am no exception. Much of my sense of being, of who I am rests in my career. I believe much of this has to do with my chosen profession. Teaching is definitely not for the faint of heart. 

However, I also believe this has to do with the fact that I feel this is more of a calling. It is what I was created to do. This makes my job an essential part of who I am.

It is no wonder when I lost my job a few years ago, I was seriously tested. The lack of income was a struggle and hardship. However, my ego and my self-esteem took a major hit as the years came and left leaving me unable to find a teaching job. It was then I was first met with the question of if I'm not teaching, then who am I.

I came to this conclusion, I am still a teacher. Even without a classroom to prepare les…
