Happy This Week

I got absolutely showered with love this week…thank you all! I’m over the halfway point with my really bad chemo…only 5 more to go! Still a long way to go until I’m totally done, but it will feel good to have this one part behind me.

I read this article on FB about this cancer survivor that created these empathy cards. They are perfect and they made me laugh. I’ve gotten some other cards from people that were equally hilarious and helpful. Isn’t it amazing how much a little snail mail can brighten your day?

This John Oliver take on Common Core testing is perfect. Made my day!

Two of my friends from high school, Diane and Megan, sent me a gorgeous bouquet of tulips along with a sweet card. Totally made my day!

My friend, Maureen, sent me two bracelets that say “Strong and courageous” and “You got this.” They are awesome. I will wear them every day!

My friend from college and sorority sister, Kristine, gave me a sunshine basket filled with all things yellow and happy. It’s the cutest basket ever! My kids were excited for the M&Ms and MilkDuds!

Another friend and sorority sister, Shannon, delivered dinner this week and I was able to chat with her for a bit. It’s been forever since I’ve seen her. I hope to catch up with many of my local friends this summer! She also made us the most delicious salad!

My Mom took me to chemo this week. It’s always a treat getting to spend time just the two of us.

I receive numerous texts, FB messages and cards just to say people are thinking of me. I can’t tell you how much those help and mean to me!

I love seeing my students wearing my “I can. I will.” t-shirts!

I’m taking next week off of work so I can rest and recuperate. I’ve not been feeling that great and think I need this to get to the end of the year. With that break, I only have 6 more days of school! I love my students and will miss them next year but I’m glad to have lesson plans, grading, etc., off my worry list for a while!

My friends at work are so supportive!

I saved the best for last! My friend, Kelley, who has been an amazing prayer warrior and support to me, treated me to the musical Once this week. Have any of you seen it? Oh my goodness. I LOVED it. I am not a musical buff either but this one blew me away. It’s funny and sad and heartwarming and the music is to die for. It was such a special treat to be shared with such a wonderful friend!

What made you happy this week?

  1. Music is healing! I love Once, too. I pretty much love all the shows though 🙂 If/Then is touring soon – with Idina in the bigger cities! I highly recommend it. Maybe we could go to Mexcio and see the Latin version of a show together?! xoxoxoxo

  2. I do know how to spell Mexico…
