Just finished a wonderful visit with one of my oldest friends in the world…sometimes one just needs to reconnect with that person and just be….we don’t talk often, but when we do….we can talk for ages and time just disappears. We all need that one person!
Subbed at the junior high three days this week and although I am pooped, it really was the medicine I needed for what life has been throwing at me the past two months. Next week I will be going back to working part-time at the school and have to say…kind of looking forward to it!
Was surprised today…even cried a bit…was in study hall in the resource room, helping some of my favorite 7th graders when the teacher asked one of the kiddos to walk to the office with her to help her with something…when they came back I was asked to come out to the hall….and Colton handed me these….
My daughter and her fiance sent me flowers for Valentine’s Day (we have no school tomorrow)! The teacher was my daughter’s teacher back in the day and they conspired! Haven’t been given flowers in many years…along with life being such a treat right now…I cried right out in the hall. Definitely blessed with some great people in my life!
Winter has definitely reignited…we had a few really nice days, just a bit above freezing…able to get some laundry out on the line…today most area schools had a two hour late start, think my pickup said it was still several degrees below zero at 10:00 this morning and we only made it a few degrees above zero for a high. Most surely wakes a person up! It’s this time of year I start saying…spring is getting closer with each day…
Spring is getting closer with each day….
When your world comes falling down around your feet…..where do you find it in yourself to pick yourself up and start all over again. 31 years….what the hell….I am now only The Farmer’s Daughter….
Starting to get the cabin fever…ready for winter to start loosening up a bit, although in all reality we haven’t had near the winter like the winters we had when I was a kid. The older I get the less and less I care for winter.
Have been filling in, subing at the junior high school a bit more lately. Has been nice getting out and talking to adults and seeing the kiddos. Last week the gal who was hired to take over when I left, put in her notice…there has been hinting going on about whether I would be interested in coming back full time….have to say that I am considering it.
Our small school has been hit pretty hard lately…in January we lost a teacher and two former principals, three in one month was tough…four days ago we lost a high school student to an accident…such a sad time.
Ruby and I went to the folks yesterday afternoon for a weekly weekend visit….dad told me this amazing story and it just hit me that I had to share it…true story…
Ol’ Bob passed away, gosh, can’t recall at the moment whether it was spring or summer…pry should have asked dad…anyway….Bob passed away while fixing fence…he was round about 90 give or take a year or so…good old guy.
When the ambulance folk came to take Bob away~a young calf came over and laid down in the same spot Bob was just removed. That alone touched my heart.
Dad was in town days ago and learned that recently Bob’s wife (who had been a school teacher of my 76 year old dad) and family had loaded up the herd to sell…guess who was never found? That calf…nowhere to be found. Those are the times that remind me, that to me, God is real….
Much Love and Happy Sunday….
Winter storm in the forecast…better get out while we can.
Kind of like Finding Waldo….wonder if he thinks he hiding?
The beautiful sunrise this morning makes me realize there is beauty during hard times…sometimes it has to just smack you in the forehead…but it is there.
Winter seems to have finally showed it’s ugly head. Not loving it, but it was inevitable…
Poof…30 years gone in a flash…don’t blink.
