Gratitude days 17-24

OK so I did not do so good this week the daily gratitude thing. Here is some stuff to catch up-

I am grateful I made it to Thanksgiving break. I seriously need it. Five days of no work and no students.

I am grateful for people willing to help me dye my hair. Has to happen frequently and it gets old doing by myself. One day I will be very rich and can afford to have it done every 5-6 weeks.

I am grateful for understanding friends at work that let me vent and help me.

I am grateful for our Special Ed aides at work. With out them I would go crazy and would not get my job done.

I am grateful for delicious food to cook and eat.

I am grateful for the ability to read. Getting lost in a book is one of my favorite things to do.

Gratitude days 11-15

OK so I have missed a few days so I will do one big catch up.

1. I was grateful for Friday! It was a hard week and late start Friday was very nice.

2. I am grateful for my roommate. She is a great friend, she listens to me when I have a bad day but also is ok if I don't want to talk. Thanks Angie!

3. I am grateful for my Heavenly Father. He has comforted and guided me my whole life.

4. A student told me thank you today, I am very grateful for that.

5. I am grateful for my new sweater. Sometimes new clothes can make you feel great!

Gratitude days 9 and 10

So yesterday was a bad day and I was not really in a gratitude mood. I also would like to apologize to those who had to deal with me yesterday... I was slightly irritable. Anyway part of this exercise is being grateful all the time so yesterday I was grateful for understanding friends and family that let me vent and tried to make me feel better. Today I was grateful for M and M's. They make great bingo chips :)

Gratitude Day 7

Today I am grateful for my job. As frustrating, overwhelming and exhausting as it can be some times, the fact that I get to help students be better readers is amazing. It is something that can change their life forever, for the better. The fact that I did not plan on being a reading teacher but was led to it makes it even more amazing.

Month of gratitude.

Hello all. (I say all facetiously since I know I post so infrequently the only one reading this is probably someone who clicked here by mistake. Anyway welcome...) My sister started doing a month of gratitude posts on her blog and I thought it was a great idea. So I am stealing it from I do most of her good ideas. Since I am getting started late I will just do 5 things from last week then start with today-

Nov 1-5: Last week I was grateful for spending time with my brother and niece, a good Halloween costume, getting all my IEP's scheduled, having power (hearing about others without it makes me very grateful) and TMBG.

Today, Nov 6: I am grateful for a day to rest and recover. It was a long hard week and I was exhausted.
