to me - memorial day is remembering your family - your ancestors - i feel like it's turned into another veterans day - not that i believe that veterans don't deserve a day - i just think that memorial day is for remembering who you are and where you came from
i have the privilege of KNOWING my grandmothers AND great grandmothers
my line is irish/prussian
i've married english/russian
i am TEXAN
i am blessed with who i am - and where i came from
i am pleased to pass on my heritage to my boys
i thank my ancestors for their hardships and sacrifices that allow me to be where and who i am
"they should always pray and not give up"
my earnest prayer
i will be receiving my next years teaching assistant position soon - my prayer is that i am given the best possible schedule and posting for myself and my family - it is my hope that i will be home earlier and that i am able to assist in one class rather than "float" between classes - if you think of me or my family in the upcoming days your prayers would be appreciated
i gouged my ankle at school today - the type of cut that involves laying on your back fighting passing out (and cussing because there are pre-school ears present) and using an ENTIRE box of kleenex and one frozen juice box to stem the flow
i sliced the top of my finger off while making dinner - the type of slicing that involves no one wanting any salad - because - is that a tomato?
i had a rough, dry cuticle that i thought would be best to clip before i started picking at it - it was the type of clipping that makes you recall that birds will bleed to death if you clip their cuticle too low
i decided maybe i should just take a shower - well hell if i didn't shave a hole in my achilles - it was the type of bath that involves scrubbing off the floor when finished
i should probably call it a night - but i think i can get in some machete juggling practice first....
