Words to live by...

"A good teacher is like a candle - it consumes itself to light the way for others." ~Author Unknown

"A good wife is her husband's biggest fan -- no matter how crazy he is." ~Me


"May God give you.. For every storm a rainbow, for every tear a smile, for every care a promise and a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share, for every sigh a sweet song and an answer for each prayer." ~ Irish Blessing

I am thankful for...

- Sweet, wonderful hubby who is still moving around fairly well (ah-hem) considering he's ridden 5 zillion miles on his bike in the past year

- Adorable dog who thinks he's a human and sleeps next to me with his head on Chris's pillow

- My family who, despite their moments of pure insanity, are still always good for a stomach cramping laugh at the dinner table

- My house and everything in it (especially my cool new bike even though I haven't been able to ride it in a few weeks)

- 600 mg Ibuprofin and some muscle relaxant with a big name -- they make my day a little less painful

- My wonderful friends who, despite their tendency to be flaky once in a while, are the best at challenging me to make it through a bike ride without crying or are good for teacher-time that generally includes all of the following in one shape or form: wine, avocado, and chocoalte

- My sweet little kids at work, they've faced more in their 5 or 6 years than I've faced in my 24 and yet they always smile and giggle and think farts are hillarious

- My tasty pumpkin pie that mom made just for us to take home -- complete with spray whipped cream and everything

- My knitting. It's fun and productive and I've made some good friends doing it.

- My health -- things could be much worse

- Everyone that leaves comments on my blog and makes me feel loved :)
