This week I’m thankful for…
- the beautiful notebook a friend made for me.
- the little boy in my classroom who was so excited about a card I’d put in his mailbox that he hugged my leg extra tight
- Ruby Bridges for inspiring my kids to be brave
- Martin Luther King, Jr. for giving me goosebumps every time I hear his speech
- sheets fresh from the dryer
- cold Saturday mornings perfect for writing in bed
- my Words With Friends friends
- frigid bike rides followed by scalding hot showers
- one of my little girls, who on finding out we were getting yet another new student, said “We are the luckiest class-we always get new friends!”, I’ve welcomed three new kids into our class within a week. I’m going to try hard to have the same perspective as the little girl and think about how lucky I am to spend time with these new little ones.
- the little girl in my class who, after writing pages and pages of a story, proclaimed, “Mrs. McCauley, I wrote lots of Golden Lines.” Yes you did, little one, yes you did.
- Terry, always Terry.

You have wonderful blessings to be thankful for, especially Terry! And we have been blessed with an amazing daughter!
Thanks, Chris. I’m pretty fond of you guys, too.
