Finally Stay at Home Momma

Family, Home, Life


on July 19, 2013

I was a teacher for 15 years before staying home.  I taught fifth grade for a total of eleven years and middle school for four years.  That equates to quite a few students entering my life.  Thanks to social media, I have been able to reconnect with some of them.  I have former students that are working, going to school, being parents, etc.  They are all so awesome and working hard to be productive adults.

I will admit that there are some students that have always held a special place in my heart.  I give them advice, they give me advice.  I cheer for them, they cheer for me.  It is wonderful seeing these students as adults.  I no longer consider them former students; I consider them my friend.  I cannot explain in words how much these relationships mean to me.

I received a message on Facebook last night that one of these adults was leaving a hair bow she made for my daughter on my doorstep.

Hair Bow

It is absolutely beautiful!  It is for epilepsy awareness.  I love how I am able to spread awareness, and I have these wonderful people helping me spread awareness as well.  Tink loves it as well as Martha.
