A Thank You & Blue X's

To say that I am fortunate is an understatement. I will never be able to express my gratitude to all of you. I know I have said it before, but I must say it again. I honestly don’t know how I would have gotten through this journey without all of you.

So many have sent texts, emailed, commented on my last crazy post, and/or called. I am truly humbled to have so many caring people in my life.

The texts started early before I was at school. They continued throughout the day. I will admit I was a bad teacher and left my phone on at school, ‘just in case’ the rumors were wrong.

Jumping off on a tangent:

Every now and then I will forget to turn off my phone at school. It never fails when I do that a text will come through, usually when we are in the middle of a lesson. When a text comes in, my phone sounds like bells. The first time it happened in class I said, “an angel got it’s wings” ~ trying to cover the fact that my phone was on. :o) Now every time my phone goes off all of the kids will yell out, “an angel got it’s wings!”

Monday there were many angels getting their wings, and I am so thankful. You will never know!

Monday on the way home from work a friend who has ‘been there, done that’ phoned. Talking to her made my day. No matter the situation this friend has a true gift of knowing EXACTLY the right thing to say. This isn’t the first time she has pulled me out of a funk, and I’m sure it won’t be the last. Thank you ~ from the bottom of my heart, M!

Thank you to all of you!
