I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

Small, Thoughtful Gifts

Never underestimate the smallest acts of kindness - they can really brighten a day:

1- I sent an email to parents of 4th graders on my volleyball team, and I introduced myself as the middle school religion teacher. One parent (whose son I had in 4th grade) wrote back, "You are not just the religion teacher, you are the BOMB!" - Well, that sure made me smile.

2- I received an order in the mail, and when I opened it, I found two small items included as a simple "thank you" for being their first customer. Lovely!

3- My mom sent a good luck card, prayer, stamps, and Target gift card in the mail. :)

I sure hope I was able to bring a smile in some small way to someone's face today. Did you?
