 I enjoyed a nice long meditative walk with my dog. The snow was very pretty and peaceful.

Gratful for the opporunities to not only teach but to also continue learning each and every day.

Gratful for my Wife feeling better today.  *She was very ill for the last couple days to the point that I had to give her an IV to rehydrate her body.

Gratful for our new addition to the family.  His name is Samson and we recently adopted him from a good home that could not provide ample room for his needs.  8 yr old pure bred Rottweiler...  Pictures will be posted in a couple days   :-D :mrgreen: :-D 8-)

Samson has only been with us 3 days and already my 4 y/o son was able to walk him with ease on our daily trek *(sans any help but with my watchful eye proudly observing)  We are truely blessed.

 :-)

In seven years as a public school teacher, I have never told my students that I train. We have a presentation and research paper coming up in my classes for which the students have to write about a special talent/hobby/or professional interest. I just presented a sample presentation in my first period class, and it went very well. I also felt very comfortable talking about my MA background with my students. I'm grateful for that.

Also, yesterday's gratitute post was in no way meant to take away from anyone from a country other than the States. I have really had my life enhanced by exposure to cultures other than my own.
