Time for me

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

I decided today to take a year to really enjoy my family, so that means giving up being a teacher of the visually impaired. I will still teach special needs preschool as that is my primary job and I love it!

I feel like I am always trying to be perfect to please others! Well I have learned so much on this journey and now really want to enjoy this year with my son who will be a senior in high school. My daughter lives just 5 hours away now and I want to spend weekends exploring upper Michigan with her while she wants to spend time with me. I want to visit my son and my new daughter in law and not feel like I just have too much work to do! I am doing what is important to me and making it happen at this moment. Taking my own advice finally!

My husband and I love to do activities together such as hiking, biking, boating, skiing. Well as my new knee needs time to heal, I signed us up for a glass blowing class. So looking forward to laughing our way through that!

Family is so important to me and making a difference in children's lives. I just need to balance it out this year a bit better! I want to be more carefree and not try so hard to be what others expect! This is the time to really love me and let it shine onto others!

    That's so beautiful that you & your hubby share many physical activities together. I truly believe those who play and laugh together stay together!
