Today is my birthday.
I love birthdays and I love to celebrate. So, I have taken the day off of dieting and stressing and anxiety and I am just enjoying the day!
My students brought me precious and thoughtful presents and my favorite chocolate chip cookie cake and we sang and celebrated during homeroom. I felt much loved by all of them. A couple of highlights are a very awesome “teacher” sign and a few simple gifts from Bath and Body Works which I love. But what I treasured the most was their genuine excitement for my day. I love what I do and it is days like this that remind me of why I chose to be a teacher in the first place.
Megan and Tyler fittingly got me two balloons and two bouncing balls, princess and Buzz Lightyear. It is the thought that counts and they really thought that I would love those gifts and I do.
I was going to make a list of thirty things that I have done so far in my thirties, but that is going to have to wait. I am busy with baths and bedtime…such is life at this season. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
Yes, I think the best year of my life is yet to come!
