My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

My Life

Blog Prompt: Today is Evaluate Your Life Day. Reflect about your life and tell how you think it is going so far.

I’m pretty happy with my life and all that I’ve accomplished.

Personally: I married the man of my dreams and every year gets better and better. We fought a lot the first year we were married but now we hardly argue at all. It seems like we can finish each other’s thoughts before we say them. He knows how I’m feeling before I realize that I’m feeling that way. I enjoy being with him and traveling with him.

Professionally: I had always wanted to teach and had a wonderful career in teaching. When I made Teacher of the Year for my school and top ten finalist for the district, it was the icing on the cake. Now I teach on the college level to teachers so I can share my knowledge and experiences. I love sharing what I know with others in order to help them be better at what they do. I don’t think that I’m teaching them many things new as much as sharing ideas and developing new strategies and techniques that they might be able to use in their classrooms.

I never hiked when I was growing up and now I love it. I love being outdoors and enjoying nature. I have also taken up gardening and even though I’m not good at it, I enjoy it. I have also taken up knitting and I find it so relaxing and rewarding. Along with the prayer shawls I make for my church group, I am learning to knit things for myself.

Life is good!

Can I third it? What a wonderful life we all have had, if we just stop to think about it for a minute.
