This is my first post testing out my new blog app to see how I like it. So far so good. I'm ready for the weekend. I must say the summer always makes me wonder why I didn't become a teacher or choose some other school related career. I sometimes daydream about sleeping in and having the time off with my kids. Then, of course, I snap back into reality and acknowledge that I'm not all that fond of many other people's children, nor am I patient, so everyone is probably better off that I took a different path.

For those of you who are educators, administrators, or counselors, thank you for all you do. I hope you enjoy the summer with your family.

Delayed Appreciation

As my children get older each year, I must say that I learn to appreciate what I put my mother through while I was growing up.  Currently, I am reminded of my adolescent years as a bit--well, maybe more than a bit--of a know-it-all as I am dealing with my own 12, soon-to-be 13 year-olds.  How frustrating it can be!

This short entry is only to say "thank you" to my mom for persevering in raising me and not giving in to those (mostly) fleeting moments of wanting to strangle me.  And also to voice the hope that I can follow in her example.  God be with me...
