Today was one of those days. Happy just because. Little bits of bliss here and there.
I’ve been sick and whiny lately, so it was a nice change to have some moments that made me smile.
There was my new dress, which is so fabulous, it deserves it’s own post. (Soon!)
All the classes at school put on plays around this time. My class’ play was a couple of weeks ago (a musical circus, adorable!). Tonight, I helped out with another group. We don’t have a stage at school, so we go to the church across the street. They have a huge basement with a great stage. While I was setting up chairs, I noticed a bookshelf. Obviously, I had to check it out. They were for sale. For 25 cents! Seriously! A quarter for a book! There was a piggy bank to put your coins in.
And then coming home after a long, long day to find these beautiful lilacs my cousin Annie left for me and a card her daughter made me. Such a thoughtful gesture and it made me crazy happy! When someone goes out of their way to do something nice, just because, it’s a wonderful feeling.
I had one of these moments today. They don’t happen every day, so I sat back for a few minutes and enjoyed watching the kids work.
Also, I went to the library after school and ran into one of my first graders. Her reaction is a perfect example of how kids act when they see their teacher out of school.
You’re at the library?
You’re getting books?!
For our class?! Wow.
I hope your day had some bliss in it!
