Why I am starting this journey...
Each school year begins the same way... (for the most part :) ) I get very excited for a new year, new little angels, new parents to get to know, new teachers to work with, new adventures. As excited as I get, I get equally as nervous. I am nervous the parents won't like me (or want me to teach their children!). I am nervous that the kiddos won't learn everything I have planned or as much as they need to.
Needless to say it is a stressful time of year...my emotions are everywhere! -Just ask my husband :)
The end of last school year did not have a happy ending and it really affected my every day life. I was sad and upset- not at anyone in particular but just in general. Since that ending and few other life experiences, I came to the conclusion that bad things happen. Bad things happen to good people, bad things happen to bad people...BAD things happen. I can't stop it and I can't change it. I would look around at people everywhere I went, happy people, and be jealous or frustrated that they were happy and I wasn't. After many prayers and tears, I realized I am in the driver seat. I control how I feel. I wanted to be happy, so now I am.
Unfortunate things happen every day, but at the end of the day I am still breathing and I have my husband by my side. I have amazing siblings, nieces and the cutest baby nephew! I have so many more things to be happy about than to be sad about. I want to create a life of happiness and joy.
This blog is going to be the place where I express the things that make my days happy...food, fun, crafts, family, friends, and my 22 little angels!
Have a happy Thursday!
