Currently..... April 2016

Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'....

It is already the 3rd and I am just now getting to my "Currently" post. Currently is a link-up hosted by the fabulous Farley and it takes us out of the classroom for a minute to ponder whatever is going on in our lives currently.

I guess it's not really silence then. But I am thinking about the splendor of no tv or music. Just house sounds. And the song "The Sound of Silence" by Simon and Garfunkel is going through my head.

Loving.... that when I focus on the the good, the good increases. This is a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Thinking about grad school. I was just accepted into grad school. I am excited beyond imagination. But I am still direction-less. I don't know what the next enrollment step is or how to get ready for the upcoming year. I love school. It keeps me busier than I-don't-know-what, but I like it.

Wanting.... I am considering moving away from a home I love. I want to live where I work. My desire is to work in this district for a very long time.

Needing... a car. There are more things wrong with my little clunker than I can afford to fix. I need another clunker.

This morning I am thinking about my own life as an at-risk kid. And how I was pushed over the edge by the very people who wanted to keep me close to them and prevent my tragic demise into a world of less-than, and no good. What a long journey to claw out of that. And thank God for all the good people along the way who repeatedly saw the good in me.
