I sub a lot and have the opportunity to see a little bit more than the average parent. Recently the temperature in the school came way down, I mean it's cold in there. The teachers warned me to bring a jacket . No complaining just bring a jacket. Lights must go out if I'm not in the room , watch paper use and one day the sixth grade hall was being swept by the teachers. They are willing to do whatever it takes to save another friends job. This amazes me especially after learning that their pay is ranked 294 out of 296 in the state but test scores and overall school rating is 13th. One teacher told me she just wanted the kids to see them being good stewards of what he has given us. I love that we moved here 3 years ago !!
My brothers children will have to pay $375 to ride the bus next year and pay to play sports. Another surrounding community is closing 5 schools and consolidating to one high school.
What's your community up too?
So tonight when our President speaks I'm hoping he is going to address the education crisis in this country. Don't think it will happen because I truly believe he doesn't have a pulse on America!!!

Wanted to share some cuteness. Sweet Ashley has started her chemo and please continue to pray for her. It's a long process every other week she sits for 4 hours to receive it and she's surrounded with older folks. She is the youngest one there. She said the hardest part is watching the bags of meds drip so slowly into her. They are telling her that her hair will probably go this week. Pray that that people around her will see her true beauty. You'd be amazed what people say. Pray for her family and that a their financial burden can be lifted a bit. She looks so good and her sweet spirit is a pleasure to be around.

Colossians 1:9-14 (New International Version)
9For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding. 10And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, 11being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully 12giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified youa]">[a] to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. 13For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 14in whom we have redemption,b]">[b] the forgiveness of sins.

My word this year is POSSIBLE.
It's possible to lose weight.
It's possible to raise great kids.
It's possible to have a good marriage.
It's possible to get out of debt.
You see all things are possible...
Philippians 4:13 (New International Version)
13 I can do everything through him who gives me strength.

We are going to make some family goals and some personal goals. We also like to reflect on things we tried the previous year, something we did for the very first time. It makes us be open to new things.
I think I found my song and I will be revealing it later along with some personal goals.
Hope you're having a great day!!
