Well, I have been on a blogging marathon lately.I don't know why. I am so glad you stopped by, so lets have a coffee break okay? I am so ready for a cup. Had I known you were coming I would have had the Bunn ready. I had lunch with my friend Alice today and she brought me some coffee called Spring Fever, an English toffee, and I would have shared it. We'll have it next time as I am dying to try it.We enjoyed our lunch at Lulu's Tea Room, here in Powell. It is so nice to visit with good friends. Friends who knew you when. She and I had a good time and some good laughs.
This week, this whole year has been different. I have learned, (you would have thought I had already learned) what is important. I have found, and I hope I already knew, there is more to life than decorating. Don't get me wrong. I still have the love of antiques and tweaking. Even though I am trying to sell my house, I still tweak. But, family and friends are top precedent. If you want to read a wonderful blog, written by a young blogger, go here.
PORCH SITTING TIME
Stephanie has her priorities in order. It rained on my face when I read her blog.
Many of you know I worked in Special Ed for 30 years. I was a teaching assistant and had the worlds best job. I swear there times I should have been paying them to let me work, not them paying me. You know the story of my Danny calling me genius. He also called me his "sweetpea". He made it several syllables long when he said it. We had no idea why he called me that. I swear I can still see that smiling face, his hair in his eyes. Oh dear. This week another of our little angels passed away. She was an angel and that was her name. She was 40 years old. Know what? She was still that pretty little dark haired girl to me. It made me think of several of my former students, (I absolutely loved working with those stubborn downs syndrome children. I loved them to pieces) I remember Davena, who always called me Cloe and told me I was crazy! Jerry who always high fived me,Alecia who thought if she pointed her finger at you and hissed, you would go away, and the list could go on, but it won't. I remember so many others who made my day. One telling me I was old as dirt! One who called me and still does(we are friends on FB) baby crowe. I just want to thank each person, each parent who entrusted us with those precious children. Each person who gave me the opportunity to be a part of their lives. What fun we had and those kids will never be forgotten, as they brought so much joy to those of us privileged to work with them.
I hope I didn't bore you with this, but Angels death brought it all back. Some day I will have to share my International Special Olympic experience and attending the Eunice Kennedy Schrivers luncheon.Wow!
My camera is broken. I can't take pictures, but I am going to share some of my friend Sandi's home. Her PT is Daybreak Place and lots of you know her. Enjoy her beautiful home.
PS: I should have said Sandi's. NO she has no idea I am putting her pictures on here. None at all.lol
PSS: I am getting a new camera, so watch out! There will be lots of pictures to show.
