A day to...

Just B-R-E-A-T-H-E!

Today I do not have school. I only have one class on Friday's and my teacher is still detained in Atlanta. Flights were canceled due to the weather and she could not obtain another flight until this weekend. We still had assignments due for her class this week, but uploaded them, online. Technology, what a wonderful thing, but that means NO SNOW DAYS, even if you can't make it to school. HA!

With each new semester comes new stress. The first week or two of every semester is especially stressful, to say the least. New schedules, new classes, new teachers, and everyone must get back on schedule. Now I know why my kids are always so excited for a day away from school. Mind you, I have been working on homework all morning, but the feeling of being caught-up or ahead, is a REALLY GOOD FEELING! For a day or two I felt like a "fish out of water." I am sure you can all relate from some type of situation in your life.

I don't have anything creative to share, but I am learning and growing a lot as a person through my education and experiences. That is worth it's weight in gold! I was also the lucky recipient of a scholarship. That will be very useful and I am very grateful to have been chosen for a scholarship. Filling out the scholarship application, writing the essay and getting a recommendation was a lot work, but well worth it in the end.

Having a goal and working towards something is so very satisfying. You must have the right mind-set, determination and enthusiasm. You must look at each new day as a gift (an opportunity) and be thankful you are given that opportunity each and every day. Have a fabulous weekend. Cheers, Tonya


Another day...

has come and gone. A peaceful day today. Tomorrow, I go back to school. I didn't exactly get a lot things done that I thought I was going to while on break, but did find time to relax and spend time with family. It is good to take time to do that as well.

Quite often we all get lost in our lives and don't always take the time we should. This year, I am going to make more time for myself and take better care of me. As a mom, I always do things for others and worry about others, now it is time to worry about me. Sound selfish, maybe to some, but to others that know me; know that I very seldom make time for myself.

With school, school work, three children, the endless housework and budget, well that does not leave much time for anything really. Just thinking out loud here a bit, I guess. Wishing each of you a better year than last and here is to beginning each new day with beauty all around. Mother nature is a glorious painter of perfection, isn't she? Peaceful Blessings to you, Tonya
