Making It All Matter

Saturday, May 21, 2011

Since I've been maintaining, I have had the pleasure of gaining smart habits day-by-day. Taking it all into stride and never giving up have truly paid off. The compliments keep adding up & making me prouder of myself.

So glad I found this site!

    First of all, emoticonfor getting to a maintenance phase of your life. I feel like I will never get there, but then I NEVER thought I would do some of the other healthy things I have been doing. Thanks for being such a wonderful example and supportive.

Love Ya Soror

Word for the Day On Wednesday, May 18th

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

Allow your definition of greatness be about who you are, not just what you can become.
Define self without letting others define you.

What motherhood means to me...

Sunday, May 08, 2011

As a child, I played with dolls and pretended to be their mother. Feeding, changing diapers, and rocking them to sleep.
If only I knew what the REAL meaning of motherhood was then, I'd have treated my dolls with lots of talk about the expectations of growing up in society.
Yes. that would have been a deep conversation. emoticon

Well (today), motherhood means being a support system for not only my children, but others' children as well- 15 years in the teaching profession says it all.

It means the world to me to be a part of the "village" that makes a difference in a child's life. So whether you're a mother or father or a single person w/o parental commitment, be a change agent or "village" supporter. We need you!

    Amen soror. I am thankful for the village in my life. They have taken up the slack in many situations. emoticon

  In general, a parent is one who didn't adequately think it through before inflicting human existence onto an innocent child. There may be a few notable exceptions (I'm not one of them.), but most people's "parenthood" arises out of illusions, foolish good intentions, and ludicrously irrational expectations about what the process of adequate child-rearing over 20+ years actually entails.

After State Standardized Testing...

Friday, April 29, 2011

The pencils have been utilized to the core of each exhausted eraser.
Children feel the instant relief of loaded neatly, dark-marked ovals and proof of answers in test booklets.
Now the proverbial dust has settled and our lives can move in a more relaxing, "let's-get-ready-for-next -year" state.
June 2nd is the magic day: the last day of the academic year... emoticon Yes, the clock is ticking...SSLLLOOOOWWWLLLLYYYY!

"What next???" lingers in each child's mind.
"Do we have to do work since testing has ended?" is the popular question I have been repeatedly asked.
I simply smile and say, "Has school ended? Are you planning to give up at the finishline or do you keep running until you've reached the end of the race?"
So, why do each one INSISTS upon repeating the question?

I LOVE middle school!

    LOL - totally agree! Although we finished the tests in March; had 5 days off for Easter; and next week, we have 3 days off school for Carnival. NO work will be done!
