I had a great weekend. The weather was gorgeous. I went to the graduation party of a future Sports Agent, Sports Trainer, and Teacher. Will they succeed? I don’t know, but I think it’s wonderful that they have dreams and aspirations and are willing to take the steps to make their dreams realities.
I worked diligently on “The French Quilt”. By Wednesday, I’ll have pictures. At least I better; Eric leaves on a plane to France Thursday, so he’ll need to have it with him. I have just one line of the border and the binding to do. More on that later.
I had 13 kids with Sunday school. We began a new quarter. I’ve got 16 on roll. The class keeps growing. When I was a little girl, I never played dolls, I lined them up and taught them school. Never played ‘Barbie’s’, but I did have a log book of homemade lesson plans to teach them. I’ve always wanted to be a teacher, but growing up in Louisiana in the 60’s and 70’s my folks did not feel it would be the job for me to have. They never had any idea that I’d ever move across the country. So I majored in Computer Science. But somehow the ‘Teacher thing’ always came through. I’ve taught for a few universities. I’ve done software training at every place I’ve ever worked. The job I have now pays more than a schoolteacher and my Sunday school kids fill the need to teach. I guess it’s a nice compromise.
Please don’t fault me for the money comment because, it’s like my son’s always says “That’s why they call it work, it’s not supposed to be fun. You wouldn’t do it for free. That’s why they pay you. Get over it Mom…. Everybody works.”
I provide for my family (and quilting habits) and yet still get to do the thing I love.
I better get busy but I wanted to write down something I heard Saturday.
‘For people with faith, no explanation is needed, for people without faith—no explanation will do.’ Something to think about…..
