I believe everyone’s life has a purpose. We are here to discover that purpose then use whatever gifts were bestowed upon us to make this world a better place. Some of us are fortunate as we know at an early age what that purpose is. Others, well, we go along, often digressing from the road that will take us there. This is me. Now on the other side of 50, I am finding my way back to that road that will lead to my life’s purpose. Welcome to my journey.
A special thank you to the many of you who have been supportive with your comments regarding my teaching frustrations.

Spring break begins today at 3:00 pm!

A couple of years ago someone placed this special note on my
window shield one day while I was out shopping.
I ran across it this week and it made me smile all over again.
Like most pet owners, our pets make our life complete; the house just doesn't feel right without them. Thankful everyday for the gift of their presence.
