I have not done a Friday Fave Five in awhile……I think I need to go for it this morning. Especially on this EARLY morning when I awoke to the dog throwing up. But here is the problem, I don’t really have a Friday Fave Five, it was a hectic, confusing week. What is a girl to do, I am writing a post about Friday Fave Five, and don’t have any!??!
Well speaking of the dog……She is a 10 year old chocolate lab named Nina. She’s great, I was NEVER a dog lover, but after having her all these years I am a converted dog lover. And let me tell you…..she basically thinks Curt is Jesus…the Messiah Savior of all! She totally WORSHIPS Curt. She doesn’t see that he has Alzheimer’s and struggles with things…she loves and adores him unconditionally! Curt came home after being gone all day yesterday on a day trip to Philadelphia, and the dog was in crazy, chaotic, vibrant awe of the man! 🙂 So despite the early morning puke…..Nina makes my list this week. I can learn a few things from that old dog!
My job, although I must admit I am not a true fan of all the special ed paperwork. I do love what I do. I teach high school students with development disabilities, autism and an array of special needs. I have recently had several big, bad tough boys coming in to volunteer in my classroom. They do such a great job with the kids, and my classroom of 11 boys and 2 girls…just love these cool guys. So neat to see these public school boys helping out in my special ed class…..it really warms my heart!
This is such a frivolous thing, but there is a quaint coffee shop in my town that I like to frequent…..ok maybe I frequent it too much, but I love their coffee and bagels! And apparently I have fostered that same love for the bagels with in my kids! We stopped this morning before school on a dreary, rainy Friday! Helped make the a rough day a bit better…..and those little things are just what I need to get me through.
Once again our Friends are the greatest…..a teacher that Curt worked with for yours went to Philly for the day with Curt. They took the train and went to a museum together, it was a great day for Curt. And he is a blessed man to be surrounded by such loyal and caring friends!
And to tell you the truth I can’t come up with another Friday Fave FIVE…..but keeping matters in perspective I am thankful that I came up with four things this week!
I continue to stand amazed at God’s encouragement, and faithfulness to us……Tyler the other day told me that he had heard recently about how some kids can be born with out the ability to feel pain. He went on to say how at first he thought that would be pretty sweet to have that ability to not feel pain. But then he realized, the pain teaches them to know a stove is hot, a something is broken, cut or infected. They need the pain so they then know something is wrong and it can then be fixed. Pain can be good he said. It can teach and guide you.
