Happy Thursday so close to the weekend I can smell it. This week has gone by so slow for me, as if in slow motion. I can feel the week, the month, and the school year rounding the bend. The giddiness of the end of the school year TWO more days! I’m trying to thinking of a good celebratory video for Navar surviving his first year of teaching Amazing! It’s been a learning experience that’s for sure, with lots of challenges. In some ways it seems like just the other day he was being layed off from a semiconductor tool making factory. Life is ever-changing. I found myself this week in between the points of intense difficulty being really grateful for the small things like a smile, a good book, music, the bird nesting outside in our one big tree…. How has your week been? Has it been like your riding an E ticket at Disney Land or maybe rowing a canoe on a perfectly still lake at sunset with the night-blooming jasmine just getting ready to open, or not even close? Do tell, what’s going on in your world?
