Life can turn on a dime. . . .we all know that. It has happened to each and every one of us.
Last December was a typical bustling time. Days were chocked full of Christmas activities at school and with family. It was to be my last Christmas with students before I retired. I was thinking it would extra special, and I would enjoy my time. We were giving plays for K-1 as rehearsal for the parent performances . . . But my brother had other ideas. An unexpected trip to ER and emergency surgery would mean time out of my classroom.
Plays were postponed, a sub took over the classroom, a PTO member came and did my recess duty. . . but best of all my brother came through with good news and no major problem! He was there a week or so. One daughter had taken care of the puppy. I went back to school and my Nana duties.
So you see, it does take a village to get things done, just roll along life’s road thankful for many blessings, bending like GUMBY. . . hoping tomorrow will be just as exciting, blessed with wisdom and energy to keep rolling along.
. . . AND I got to have Christmas breakfast with Santa and the students! A Christmas I am sure to remember.
