Friday Five

I only had three days of school this week. I was sick on Monday, and Tuesday was a “Cold Day.” It was still a LONG week.

I was able to get through this week with some inspiration and kind words and gestures.

Here are five things that made my week.

1. A quote I read on Facebook that made me be patient and make better use of my time…

“If we believe this is a waiting period,

we will act like this is a waiting period.”

2. Something I saw on Pinterest  that calmed me down when I began to panic and worry…


What a concept!

3. A gift from a student…


Five fuzzy owl stickers

4. Walking away from the board after presenting a new way to do something we’ve been struggling with and having a student whisper, “Thank you!”

5. A video someone posted on Facebook which makes me think twice before picking up my phone.

Happy Friday, Friends and Followers!

  1. Wow, Melanie! First, I hope you a feeling better! 🙂

    Thank you for sharing this video with us. I know that wasn’t the focal point of this point, but my goodness, that just gave me chills. I can see myself in some of those scenes and that’s certainly not what I want to become. Worse, I can see my youngest daughter there, which is even more scary!

    I appreciate your sharing and hope that this weekend gave you a chance to get healthy and strong again! 🙂


    1. Thanks for writing, Darin! I am back to good health. I am glad you found something special in this post. Honestly, I think of that video every time I pick up my phone.
