Day 7-Stomach Bug Wreaks Havoc :(

If you would like to learn more about my personal project called "Advent Letters", please click here :)

Day 7

Today's letter was sent to my favorite teacher of all time, Mrs. Leach.  She was my 9th grade Social Studies teacher and is one of the reasons I am a teacher today.  She was one of the most enthusiastic and energetic teachers I have ever had.  She loves history and this passion came through in her teaching.  I am so grateful to her for all that she did for me (9th grade was a huge growing year for me) and want her to know how special she is to me.  Merry Christmas Mrs. Leach!

Z and Lil C's Advent Calendar of Experiences

Today's box included a note about movie night.  Unfortunately we have been suffering from the stomach bug for the last week now and so most of the holiday movies have been watched and this is no longer as special as it would have been had we not been watching so much TV lately :(  None the less, Z and C are the last to be sick and vegging out in front of the TV seems to be all they can manage.  I am feeling a bit better today and look forward to having this whole bug behind us!

Glad you are on the mend...I think we have stuffy head colds. Boo Boo and I anyway.

My Dearest Jessica,

You touched my heart! I just finished reading your Advent Letter to me and I cried.

It seems like yesterday we were in the classroom together and now you have a wonderful family! You were a special, special student that I had the honor and privilege to teach. YOU inspired me in the classroom!

It is evident that you have become a wonderful mom and a caring and giving woman. I am so proud to have known you and feel blessed that we were able to share our short journey together! Thank you for the gift of you! Thank you for this lovely, heartfelt gift - it means SO much!

Happy Holidays and may you feel the warmth of God's love and be filled with His peace!

Big hugs to Z and Lil C, and big smooches to YOU!!!
