My 100th post!!! Thankful Thursday #2 in March 2013

100th Post Today!!  So much to be thankful for!

  • whomever first told me about blogging
  • my daughter for showing me an example of a great blog (hers)
  • faithful slicers who continue to comment
  • students who are into writing
  • friends who understand my passion about teaching
  • Facebook to help keep in touch with old friends around the world
  • a comfortable chair to sit and write my blogs (I am also thinking about Elsie's sofa...should I switch to sofa as well??)
  • the group of students who all decided to bring me an apple today (maybe a post will follow)
  • the phrase "Ms. I miss you!" 
  • new ELL students who keep coming
  • small group ladies who keep me grounded (but in a funny way)
  • parent-teacher conferences with a calm weather forecast (last year in March we had tornado warnings and hail)
  • jeans day at school this Friday!
  • students who have learned to communicate in English!!!!!!!!
  • YOU--who read  this list!!


  1. Wow - a wonderful list. I had a conversation with a friend the other day about why I blog, and the audience, the readers, the community, the feeling of being accountable, of being public, of being read, of actually feeling like a writer --- was at the top of my list.

    A 100 posts - a huge accomplishment!! Congratulations!

  2. I'm so glad you had blogging on you list. It really has improved my practice so much in the year that I have been doing it. Also, it sounds like you have really special relationships with your students.

  3. Congratulations on 100 posts. How exciting. Loved your list.

  4. Woo hoo! 100 posts is a reason to celebrate the day. There is so much to be thankful for every day. I need to sit back and create a list. Sit where you are most comfortable, besides my husband occupies the chair in the room. :-)

  5. Congratulations! I see my own gratitude for things in your list too. What wonderful times we live in, that connection is so easy.

  6. Congrats on your 100th post! I love that you have 'jeans' on here - I have a post swirling in my mind about Casual Fridays, too.

  7. Congratulations on your 100th post! What a great list of things to be thankful for.

  8. Onnitelut! 100 posts is a milestone. I like that you celebrate it with a gratitude list.

  9. Congrats on your #100 - quite an accomplishment. Your gratitude list covers many of the things I'm grateful for. Keep writing - you'll reach 200 before you know it.

  10. Congratulations! I've been watching my numbers and I'm going to hit it this month also. What a neat way to celebrate...a thankful list. CONGRATS again!

  11. You have a lot of wonderful things to be thankful for! Congratulations on your 100th post -- an exciting milestone! (By the way, slicing on the couch is the way to go -- I almost always write from our reclining couch!)

  12. Congrats! I am almost there as well! How exciting to think about all the writing you have done! Enjoy the feeling and keep writing!

  13. Great list! I love the idea of Thankful Thursdays. I might have to start that in my writing week, too!
