|Jackson and Abby|
I spend each morning and evening checking to see what everyone is doing. I love reading the friendly political sparring between Kendra and Joe but try to remain an observer. (But, Joe...you have it right!...and Kendra...you are a great person...love reading about your kids...but we just differ on views.) And there are the world travelers...Amy who has been in the Peace Corps and Laura who has a job that sends her around the world. She has been posting pictures of a Flat Sawyer for a friend's child. What an adventure he has had. Riley...you followed one of my dreams and now have a PhD and keep busy on research and archaeological digs in Turkey and Italy. Tommy...you, too, just earned your PhD! Katie...you are a chef now! Kyle...you are almost finished with your Masters.
Darla...you just got Member of the Month from the Health and Wellness Center! Shawnda...you have been so brave in your struggle with Chiari (I had never heard of this until you shared.) Ben...you have turned into quite a writer...maybe you should join the Slice of Life next year! Check his book on Amazon.
So I am fighting the guilt of leaving out most of my former students....but know this blog would be way too long. I just so appreciate reading about their lives...what they have accomplished...pictures of their beautiful families...some are going through difficult struggles, but they find help and support from friends on Facebook. Once in a while someone vents...but not often...and when there is a vent it seems to be needed and no inappropriate language is used. How proud I am of all of my former students...I wish I could include each one of you in my list of your activities. Do know that I follow your lives and I feel so blessed that you have allowed me to be a friend on Facebook.
And please, take a bit of time to listen to this amazing You Tube written and created by Chase...he plays guitars, sax, violin and drums...as well as sings.
