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

Days Like This

Days off - we all need them. That's what the weekends are for. And, yes, that's what holidays are for too.

Because of the MLK holiday, I was able to take today (and Sunday) pretty easy. And after the hectic-ness of Friday (with dealing with car stuff) and doing errands on Saturday, that was pretty good.

In fact, on Sunday I did absolutely nothing school-related. I didn't even check my school email or review my lesson plans.

So, what did I do? I went for a jog on the Lakefront Trail with my sister. I had a relaxing brunch with my sister and a friend. I read a book. I went to Mass at a new (for me) Church with my sister and another friend. I watched Downton Abbey with my sister. It was simply a lovely day.

Today wasn't quite as relaxing, though I did find time to go to the gym, read, cook, and watch some television. I did spend an hour or so lesson planning for this and next week, as well as preparing additional materials to accompany my lessons. And, in just a little bit, I am off to Bible Study. A good, full day indeed.

Yes, days off. We all need them. Thank goodness for days like these.
