One of the best parts of being a teacher is the sweet things that the kids do for you sometimes. Today...for no reason at all...I got these beautiful purple roses!
They just sat on my desk all day making me happy and smelling so good. And this little cutie pie is who gave them to me.
And just a few days ago I got this cute Halloween bag of Lindor truffles!
It's the little things that mean alot and make the long hours worth it.
On a totally different subject, we got some very sad news last night. Steve's brother, Mike, had to put his beloved dog, Ginger, to sleep yesterday. He has had Ginger forever. She was a lab and I'm not sure exactly when he got her, but I know it's been many years ago...back when my kids were really little. Ginger has been his friend and faithful companion and such a sweet dog. We all loved her.
She got cancer back during the summer and it finally got so bad that he had to put her down. I know he is heartbroken. Please say a little prayer for him. It might seem silly to some people to be so sad over just a dog, but if you've ever had to put a dog to sleep, you know how heartwrenching it is! We had to put our Jack Russell, Petey, to sleep a few years ago and it was awful. We all cried our eyes out. It just takes time to get over it.
Hope you are having a good week!
