Thankful

Well, my pies are out of the oven, the turkey is prepped and ready to be popped into the oven in the wee hours of the morning, & I am ready for the holidays to begin!! 

Over the past several weeks, I've been thinking of all the many things for which I am thankful...family, friends, health, & the ability to adjust to new situations & challenges are high on my list. I am so thankful for God's grace. My mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's this summer, & since then it seems my life has been filled with new adjustments & new responsibilities. Learning my new "normal" & getting the school year off to a running start proved to be a challenge. But, you know what? It really wasn't that bad....things are under control...my family is healthy...my mom is doing pretty well...I love my group of kiddos...they're learning & showing lots of growth...It just hit me tonight as I sit here reflecting that even with the challenges of this year, I am truly blessed.

With that being said, I am looking forward to getting back to blogging! I have really missed it. I feel blessed to be part of the blogging community. I love that there is so much support for one another. I've met some really great friends & I've really missed being here. So glad to be getting back!
 
I feel like celebrating, & in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I'd like to give the first 5 people who comment a copy of my Math Calendar Pack! (Don't forget to leave your email address!)



Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!!
