hanging in…..hanging out…and hanging on…   2 comments

time is winding down to the final curtain call….until it is all over with, the summer gone and school will be in session again.

looking a head I see the hustle and bustle of the students in my school who have all grown an inch or more over the summer…..I see the trees turning brilliant orange and burnt reds as they all  fall softly to the earth.

I see snow and bitter coldness. and myself out there shoveling as my nose is running and my glasses are fogging up…..and the holidays looming ahead.

I see a new year coming…..and my four children’s birthday’s…the first three months of the new year…..

I see spring and rain and mud and a messy school every day to clean….

and before I know it, the 2010-2011 school year will be done and it will be summer again.

I will turn 50, a half a century old….and hopefully be a bit wiser…..

Amazing how quickly it all goes….

Lucky me   Leave a comment

I realized today what a lucky person I am
And while this isn’t really news, sometimes I forget how lucky and blessed I am, when all the s— comes down on top my head.

I am lucky because I am loved.
I am lucky because I have four children and four beautiful grandchildren and I feel truly blessed for all of them.

I have good friends
I have great siblings…

I have my health and all those I hold dearest are healthy as well.

I have a man who loves me unconditionally (Thank God)

I am just a lucky woman.

ready…..set…..go!   Leave a comment

oops I’m not ready.
We can’t start the new school year until I am ready.
And I have to say, quite happily I might add, that I am almost ready.
I will be ready on Monday.
that gives me three more work days to get it all done.
And hopefully, I will.
I am extremely positive today.

I realize yesterday I was hating everything in life, but today I am completely upbeat and happy.

It is all going to fall into place.
And to top it off, the weather man says it is supposed to cool down come Sunday.
That makes me want to dance on that little tidbit of information alone!!!
Love the cooler temps!

And yes….I am ready for fall…….

Happiness   Leave a comment

“people are just as happy as they make up their minds to be”

Abraham Lincoln said this quote

my husband says it another way, ‘happiness is a state of mind’

I disagree on both counts.
A person can be happy and a person can be sad and it all may or may not have something to do with the fact that life’s circumstances either get in the way or…..promote happiness…

people may very well choose to be happy but something may come along to make all that happiness disappear.

Or life’s situations can  just get the best of someone.

I am one of those people who believe the cup is always half full.
I am very positive…..but life can get me down just like it can anyone else.

Life is just what it is…..
