Home to Texas


Good-bye daily walk to the beach!

Good-bye view of the ocean from my beach chair!



Good-bye elderly tourist fashionistas!

On my way home to Texas today, and I have to confess it is rough leaving and knowing I'm going back to face more Reality. I think I've cried more tears this week then in all my other years combined. Hoping that the worst is behind me in the privacy of this vacation. 

I found a quote by actress Helen Hayes. Looking back on the period following her husband's death, she said, "I was just as crazy as you can be and still be at large."  That is exactly how I feel at times.

Back to teaching inservice on August 17; students August 24. Wishing to be ready.

Keeping busy for Him can be one of the best antidotes for the hurting soul!

Being broken is beautiful to the Lord. He's going to use you in amazing and precious ways in the weeks and months to come in spite of ALL the difficult changes you are going through!

May God bless you and your new class of students!
