Marvelous Monday....

Ugh, finding the strength to write a "marvelous Monday" post is tough today. The thought of skipping this week definitely crossed my mind. The last few days have been filled with tears and pain. My friend's sweet baby passed away Thursday night and on Saturday we went to a memorial service for the father of two of Adam's former students.
It's easy to wonder why life is so tough sometimes. Why all this heartache and pain? The one thing I've realized through all this is that life is precious and can change in an instant. For me, the last few days have been a reminder to love the people in my life, cherish the moments we have together and live each day to the fullest.
My sweet friend is so strong...through all her pain she asks only one thing of her friends and family. She asks that we, "appreciate the moment by loving on those around you - give them kisses, hugs, high fives, hip bumps, do whatever to show you care!"

So, my marvelous Monday post is dedicated to appreciating everyone and everything I have in my life.

*I have a husband who is a rockstar. He's strong and compassionate and caring. He makes me laugh and we have so much fun together.
*I have amazing friends. They are caring and supportive. They are people that I can laugh and cry with. They let me be silly and I love the time we spend together.
*I have the most wonderful family from my parents, brother, sister, in-laws, cousins, grandparents, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephew....I couldn't have asked for a more perfect family. They are full of love for each other and we laugh and make the best memories when we're together.
*I work with some wonderful and caring people. I love the way they pull together to help the people around them. Teachers are truly the most caring individuals I know.
*I have the best pets a person could have. A snuggly dog full of spunk and personality and a cat that drools.
*I work with 400 kids that do their best to drive me crazy, make me laugh and cause me to question my sanity on a daily basis and I wouldn't want it any other way.

I hope your Monday was marevous...I know mine was.....


  1. I am sending S & K all of my love and support. I know that nothing can take away the pain of losing a baby, but I hope they know they have a community of love around them. My deepest and most sincere condolences.
