The Gratitude Post

I'm writing a weekly post to express gratitude for everything I have been blessed with in my life. Will you join me in sharing just five things you are grateful for this week?

This week I'm grateful for:

Test days: I really enjoy teaching, but I also really enjoy standing at the front of a classroom watching my students take a test while I do nothing. It's nice for a change.

Direct Deposit: A fabulous invention.

Buying groceries: I love going grocery shopping. Did I mention that I love going grocery shopping? It's really the only kind of shopping I like to do and I could do it for hours, depending on the store. Maybe I should be a personal grocery shopper.

Drums: I'm so happy that Steve and I got drums for H & P's first birthdays. Not only do they love playing them at home, but they also got to play them in their first drum circle a few weeks ago and they can't stop talking about it! I look forward to their next drum circle.

Having a voice: Given that I lost my voice for virtually an entire week, I have become far more grateful for it that I have been in a long, long time. Especially since I'm teaching. Yeah...it's sort of necessary. Thank you, voice, for serving me so well.


  1. I would totally pay you to be my personal grocery shopper.

  2. I recently discovered a chldren's drum circle in my area and am excited to bring my 3 year old to try it out. That's great that your little ones enjoy it so much.

  3. For myself, grocery shopping for someone else would fail to satisfy. It's partly the fun of bring lots of good things home, isn't it?
    LOVE the drums!!! I just got out my giant tibetan bowl for Melody and she was so ready for it. I'd love to hear more about the drum circle too.
    I also love the way you acknowledge and thank your body, your voice. I try to remember that.

    1. Unfortunately I keep having to work on the days of the drum circle so I'm not sure when we'll get back there, but I will report on it! I love bringing home good stuff but then I want to eat it all immediately...and I can't.. :)
