We, teachers, are counting the days until spring break.
Yes indeed we are.
I catch myself being really short this time of year. The weather is starting to warm up and everyone is itching for a reprieve. I try to remain as patient as I possibly can. But just this morning I caught my blood pressure rising after one of my little friends put that hat back on his head as soon as I turned around even though I just told him to take it off.....
I mean, seriously. It was just a hat. What's my deal?
Carolyn just gave me a sunshine award. I decided I needed a little sunshine in my life. Instead of answering questions, I snapped a few photos of my daily work routine on my phone. This is a pictorial answering of questions. Sort of. Besides, I don't think I'd ever be able to pick a favorite color. That would be like a mother having to pick a favorite child.
Afterwards, as I flipped through my photos, I noticed my blood pressure lowering. I really do have a fun job. Look at what I get to work with all day. Fun stuff.
There's no shortage of projects at work. I was starting to feel a little down on myself about my shortage of sewing projects lately. Never a dull moment at school.
This was a really nice reminder of how lucky I am to be able to make a living from my passion: creating.
And later in the day, I didn't even raise an eyebrow when another one of my little friends decided to paint his neighbor's face instead of his paper.
Ok, well maybe I did raise an eyebrow.
But you get the idea.
I needed that.
I'm passing along sunshine to....
Because you all bring a little sunshine to this sewing blogiverse.
On a side note, if you gave me an award in the past couple of months and I didn't post a formal blog response, I apologize. Thank you so much. I really, really do appreciate it.
