Home Again

We arrived home last night from out trip to Ohio. Grandma's funeral was lovely. T and his cousin spoke. They both did a great job. The funeral director told my MIL that he hadn't seen a funeral so full of love in a long time. He was impressed with both T and J.

One more week until spring break. I'm looking forward to relaxing. We may go visit MIL for a day or two. I'd like to go to Conner Prairie. I'd also like to visit Benjamin Harrison's home. We shall see!

was weigh-day. I didn't weigh myself. I overslept and didn't think of it until later.

Today was a blur. I have so much to do to get ready for Grandma's funeral. I hate being anxious about getting things done and being prepared.

Talked to the boss today. She seems to have more faith in me then I have in myself. That's sad isn't it? Hopefully I can pull myself together and do my job without feeling incompetent.

What a tough life...

The father of one of my students is a battered husband. Two weeks ago he broke his foot. I keep thinking of Misery. A staff member made a home visit last week and the wife pushed him down in front of her. Interventions were made as a result and today he came to school and withdrew his 3 children (not his wife's children) and took off. He has a home in another town and left with the clothes on his and his children's backs. He said his wife stole his money before she left for work. I'm afraid the wife is going to come to school to dig for information. Several of her children will still go to our school.

I can only imagine what some of my students suffer through in their homes. Some of the things I know about are sad enough. It's what I don't know about that worries me. It's days like this that I believe God has me in this place at this time for a reason. I'm still not sure what the reason's His will I'm sure.

Lots to do

This weekend is going to be all work and no play. Then, Monday, I get to start a new schedule which I haven't even written yet! 9 weeks of school left. Next week we have a half day Thursday and no school Friday. I need this.

Grandma's kidneys are beginning to fail.

+/- 0 pounds, I'll take it.

We have a new family member, Tyler was born Friday night to Jami and Nick. He's a doll!

We are also praying for another family member. T's Grandma has had 2 strokes in the past week. The prognosis is not good.

I'm having a rough week at work. sigh

Answer to a Prayer

I received the answer to a prayer today. It wasn't the answer I wanted, but God's answer. I remeber telling Him that I'd be okay whatever the answer. I really thought I would be. I was hurt. Maybe that's being okay, because it's natural to be hurt sometimes. Does it make me angry? Mmmmmm, a little. I got over it quickly. I know that God has bigger and better plans for me. That his loves me and knows why I don't need what I've prayed for, at least not now.

I am blessed so many times over by my Lord. Everyday, all day long. He is with me through everything and I feel him next to me. The blessings are always warm and fuzzy. Sometimes they are 8 and mean, and only my problem from 8:30 to 2. Eek!
