Celebration Saturday


It is quiet this Saturday morning, No new snow even though it is still cold. As I wait for the Olympic hockey game to begin, the only sound is my furnace running. Whether it is Friday evening or Saturday morning when I am writing my celebration posts, I love doing these!! Thinking about my week. Counting my blessing! Thank you Ruth, for helping us find the joys in our lives!

Yesterday I had the day off because of President's Day weekend. I was relaxing at home when I remembered that I should make a haircut appointment. To my wonderful surprise, my hairdresser had time available Friday afternoon!!!! I feel like I have more energy as there is a little less weight around my head now (silly I know, but it makes me so happy).

I have two pre-student teachers who are both getting an ESL/TESOL minor. One of them was in my classroom this past fall for a few observation hours and wanted to come back for 30 more! She walked in on Monday morning with gifts of chocolate! The other pre-student teacher speaks Spanish!!!! She made my new student from Guatemala so happy! I am blessed!

My small group has been praying for one of my coworkers pregnancy. On Thursday evening I got a happy text from her. She had just had an ultrasound and things are looking much better than previously! Perfect way to start a long weekend!

What are you celebrating today?

  2. It's the small things like haircuts, days off, and chocolate. So glad to hear your coworker is doing better. That is so scary. The fact that your pre-student teacher wanted to come back to your classroom says a lot about you - celebrate! Have a great weekend!

    2. I like that you have your pic up here. White and blue. Like the Finnish flag - one of the most beautiful flags in the world. You look wonderful - a new haircut and a bright smile.

  6. Little things like hair can play a bigger role than we think possible. If we like how we look, we're more confident I think. I'm letting my hair grow out so I can donate to Locks for Lock.
