There are weeks that Friday just cannot come quickly enough… this was one of those weeks. Yesterday was our last student day of the year and today was a faculty workday. We were all so exhausted we could barely function – we just wanted to check off everything that we had to do so that we could get ready to head to our summer vacations. Some get 7 weeks off, I get 5, but I am happy to have what I get.
Today I am thankful for Fridays and so very happy that I get to sleep in tomorrow, as I am beyond sleep deprived. I have been highly accident prone this week, most likely due to that sleep deprivation. On Monday I burned my arm with the corner of a very hot baking tray and today I managed to get my left hand caught between two sliding windows and tore off skin from three cuticles (it hurt, and bled a lot – thank you hemophilia).
Yet, even with all the tragic little incidents, I am so thankful – thankful to have a job that may make me exhausted, but also enables me to be able to share my life with young people and their families on a daily basis – what an honor and privilege that is! I am thankful for my own family, and for goals and dreams that keep me going and cause me to aim higher than I may reach, and enable me to grow in my own life.
Today, 243 days ’til 40, is Fabulous Friday – life is good and I am lucky.
