Today I am thankful for . . .
177. The gift of Compliments from my family for a supper that I thought was second-rate.
178. The gift of Mitchell's enthusiasm for learning how to bake. Last week it was chocolate chip cookies - this week we've moved on to something new -- brownies!
179. The gift of My Many Students. I was sitting back during story-time at work today, marveling at the fact that I am in love with these children--children that I once dreaded being around because I was, quite honestly, terrified of them and what behaviors they were going to dish out to me on any given day. I'm not sure who has changed more . . . them or me ??? Probably a combination of both:)
