Life is full of so many uncertainties.

Right now, family, friends, and colleagues
are dealing with a multitude of uncertainties.
The uncertainty of what's to come.
The uncertainty of the right decision.
The uncertainty of just not knowing ...

Surgery and treatments
Infections and infusions
Sudden death of a student
New positions at school
Decisions to stay home
Hopes of a growing family
Concerns about words said
Frustrations with students
Busy overbooked schedules
The end of the year pressures

These uncertainties can tear us apart
create a layer of stress and frustration.
Or our uncertainties can grow us
and make us stronger in who we are
trusting in the One in control of it all.

Even when life is full of so many uncertainties ... there is still so much to be thankful for.


  1. Virtually wrapping my arms around you.

    It will work out. You have a village.

  2. Uncertainties are so hard to deal with. Cari g thoughts headed your way!

  3. The tensions and uncertainties will pass. Breathe and stay strong. How are you right now, at this moment?

  4. Unfortunately or fortunately, this is all part of life. The ups and downs, the good and difficult, the known and unknown. We get thru it all by trusting in the one who created us. He will help us to deal with it all. Hugs and love, Mom

  5. ...and with so many uncertainties, you looked up to the One you trust with it all...

Today my husband celebrates a big, BIG birthday -- and I'm so lucky and thankful to have spent  the last sixteen years learning about everything that he loves the last (almost) twelve years learning about everything that I love about him the last (almost) five years learning with my daughters why we love our Daddy.

Happy, happy 40th birthday Jon!

Picture Books: August 10 for 10

I love picture books.  No, you don't understand. I really L.O.V.E. picture books!

It is an obsession . . .  to read, to borrow, to purchase, to savor, to share, to read again     . . .  and again . .  . and again.  I need them.  I want them.  I have to have them!

That is why I had to participate in this event!  Cathy and Mandy are hosting August 10 for 10: The second annual picture book event.  They suggested to pick the 10 picture books that I can't live without in my classroom and library.  This is quite an undertaking, but I've got my favorites to share -- as of now -- in no particular order. I'm sure this list will be amended as I learn and read and fall in love with other favorite picture books.

But for now -- 
[drum roll please]
These are my go-to books.   My love-to-read-over-and-over books.   My just-can't-live-without-them books! 

Yo! Yes! by Chris Raschka

A fun, simple book about friendship.  I love using this book to discuss punctuation, size and color of tex…
