Aging is both a beautiful & rewarding process.
Some see the process as a scary future of wrinkles, graying, and body decomposition.
My adjectives: strength, perseverance, and change.
We all see life as a series of tests which we must pass to gain promotion- eternal life for some, afterlife for others.
Whatever your religious or personal beliefs, it stands that the true value of life is not in appearances, but the soul which can not be seen with the human eye, but seen through the spirit of our actions.
So as we age and grow, both physically and mentally, our value lies within ourselves and not the outer shell which masks and protects.
What is your true value?

Zooming down the bouvelard with sunshades.
Roof down...wind blowing through each strand of my hair.
Cameras flashing while the people scream, "Success!"
Yeah, that's my name!
I have the vision of nothing but success as long as I am steadfast and consistent.
Won't you come join me? There's plenty of room at the top. I'll save you a seat. Even better, I'll let you ride shotgun.
Just remember, we're looking forward. No turning back, only left or right.
What's your vision of success today?

Today was the day to assure I stay on track.
Sat myself down and said,"Look here Missy, you are gone have to get yo self straight".
(Y'all know how this Southern accent thing works)
"Either ya gonna git it right or be left (behind that is)"
Yes, that's what keeps following me when I pass a mirror...go figure!
So I have tracked my food...every bite I might add
I have had my 8 glasses of water. We teachers usually don't get this "luxury".
I have huddled with 5 of my teams.
Now I am about to journey into the world of grading journals...WooHoo! Don't be alarmed. It's total sarcasm here...Whew! Had you scared for a second there,huh?
I am assuring ACCOUNTABILITY. Just love the buzz word we educators &
administrators keep using this year...makes us all sound so educated and concerned.
Now that I have my chest poked out with pride, I can say and mean it.
To everything else at this point, it is what it is.

So I thought that I might feel this overwhelming urge to do something fun today.
Okay, I started celebrating Friday.
It may sound cheesy, but I think birthdays are special.
It's a day when you reflect on being blessed to see another year. It marks a milestone from where you WERE to where you ARE now.
Friday night- Relaxed with a glass of wine...
Saturday- Out to dinner with the hubby. What a sweetie!
Sunday- Celebrated MIL's b-day. Fried seafood for her and the family. Enjoyed!
Monday- Shopped for myself. Did NOT stay late @ work...waited by the time clock actually...wait for it...wait for it! Quitting time!!!
Tuesday- Husband surprised me by placing a large vase of assorted colored roses with baloons, card, and mini-cupcakes on my desk. LOVE BABY!!!
After school today, we have a faculty meeting. After that, brief dept chairs/ team leader meeting...then..."BOOGIE FEVER! Gotta BOOGIE DOWN...Boogie Fever. I think it's goin' around!"
sound familiar? If not, you're too young. Just kidding...
As I end this blog, remember to enjoy each day as if it were your last because tomorrow is not promised. Today, my biggest is life itself!
I have been given another day to get it right.
Make it a great day or not, the choice is YOURS!
