Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, alwaysContinue reading “Love for the Win!”

Don’t Waste a Moment!
Today, January 27, is International Holocaust Remembrance Day. On this day we pause to remember the victims from one of the darkest tragedies in the history of our world. Approximately six million Jewish people were violently executed under the Nazi regime during World War II. As a young girl, I remember reading, The Diary of AnneContinue reading “Don’t Waste a Moment!”
Where I’m From
Last week I had the joy to speak to a friend from a lifetime ago. We actually met in first grade and graduated high school together. Like many, we reconnected on social media several years ago, and I have since been able to keep up with some of his many successes and adventures. I reachedContinue reading “Where I’m From”
Courage to Connect
Today we honor the life, the actions, and the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., whose commitment to ending racial inequality and championing civil rights is noted throughout the world. Dr. King spoke eloquently of working together and of all people living together in peace. He lived – and died – speaking out againstContinue reading “Courage to Connect”
Meet Granny B!
Around four years ago I began writing occasional “Granny B” posts on my social media page. I wrote them mainly because the things she would say to me daily were sweet and often funny. Unexpectedly, the responses from friends and family were overwhelmingly positive. Folks frequently comment on the posts and ask about Granny B,Continue reading “Meet Granny B!”
Find Your Magic!
Do you like to read? I do! It’s hard to remember a time I didn’t love books or reading. When I was a little girl growing up in a small rural town in North Carolina, we had a quaint local library. It wasn’t very big – about the size of a small book shop. GoingContinue reading “Find Your Magic!”
Today, January 12, 2020, was National Sunday Supper Day. In honor of this recognition, I dug deep, summoned my inner domestic goddess and whipped up a chicken casserole with a few easy side dishes. If you are about to be the least bit impressed, please don’t. I’m an “ok” cook, but not a great one.Continue reading “Gathered Around”
As a Reading Specialist, I have many small groups of students throughout the day. Yesterday, one precious darling seemed to be struggling with being respectful and considerate to her classmates during our lesson. After several defiant behaviors, I asked her to stay for a minute when the others returned to class. We discussed the reasonsContinue reading “Little Echoes”
Today I had an impromptu meeting with a colleague about some new educational materials we had been given to use with students. This encounter led to the rare opportunity of us getting to catch up with one another for a bit. Not only is she a wonderful educator, but this young woman also happens toContinue reading “Whoa, Momma!”
Rut or Routine?
As a public school teacher, I have been on Winter Break for over two weeks – 16 days to be exact. Two weeks and three full weekends – it has been glorious! The holidays are my favorite weeks of the year – being with family and friends, the gatherings, the parties, the hustle, the bustle,Continue reading “Rut or Routine?”
