Although some would argue that every day should be Teacher Appreciation Day, this is actually the official Teacher Appreciation Week. Did you know?
As is the purpose of these sorts of designations, I've been thinking a lot over the last few days about the teachers in my life...my sister, aunts, friends...and, of course, the various teachers who have influenced me in my learning (school and otherwise!) -- and now, those that are in my daughter's life. I'm feeling grateful for all those wonderful teachers in my life.
In a time, when things are tougher than ever for teachers (cuts and all), it seems that a little extra thanks is in order (and likely needed!). I hope you'll take a moment this week to say "thank you" (in whatever way feels right to you!) to the teachers in your life.
I'm a Maine-r. Or, at least I like to think I am. True locals will argue differently simply because I wasn't born in Maine -- I'm "from away" they say. Whatever. It is crystal clear to me that I was born to live in Maine. Here's the catch. I fell in love with someone who really is "from away". So, I spend big chunks of time in a place very far from where I call home. But, I'm trying to bloom where planted, as they say. I'm trying to foster a simple (or at least a little simpler than some), reasonably wholesome and creative life for my family whether we're here or there. And, well, since you stopped here at my blog, you get to explore this craziness with me.
