Gratitude Day

Did you know that today was Teacher Appreciation Day? Yes, I am sure that Hallmark probably decided that teachers needed their very own day just like Administrative Assistants and Nurses, but shouldn't everyday be about gratitude. Since I was thanked today with a nice lunch by the PTO, a card, and a mug, I will use my blog to give a SHOUT OUT to a few. We don't say those words enough. I know I do not. So, today is Teacher Appreciation Day, but it inspires me to say thank you to people that I don't thank enough...in no particular order...

Mom-Thanks for always taking time to talk with me on the phone. You never say that you have to go or that you are in the middle of something. You always have time for me.

Jodi-Thank you for our little talks, the Diet Coke, the M & Ms, the laughs, the dish, the code words, and the advice.

Sara-Thanks for our friendship. It has grown by leaps and bounds and I couldn't be happier.

Tim-Thanks for ensuring many laughs in my day. Thanks for my daily squeeze and smooch...Too much information? Oh, well. Thanks for helping me appreciate The Force, the Hobbits, the Vikings, and the Cardinals.

Julie-Thanks for getting me addicted to scrapbooking. I can't get enough of it.

Amy-Thanks for getting me hooked me to blogging, NYC, and karaoke.

Penny-Thanks for being the hippest girl around school with the most memorable laugh I've ever known.

Kecia-Thanks for the friendship because I found a fellow cool nerd in you. You love games, puzzles, television, and Target as much as I do.

Blog Readers-Thanks for checking out my little corner of the internet.

Now, if you felt left you, I am sorry. If you are part of my life, your name or likeness is bound to show up on this blog. So, if you want to have your very own shout out, you may have to post a comment or hang out with me.

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week, fellow teacher! I just found out today that such a week exists. Not that my school has acknowledged it (yet). Hope your students are appreciating you!

I appreciate you as a teacher, a friend, and a blogger.

This is Amy. I can't remember my login id or password and can't deal with that right now. Anyway, just wanted to say: Am I responsible for pushing you toward blogging and karaoke?!?!? Because, if that's true, I want to thank myself for being at least partly responsible for two things that bring happiness to the world: Sara's blog and Sara's karaoke obsession. Thanks, Amy!
