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

"Sick" of It

Sometimes I fall into the trap of taking things for granted...my health, for example. And when a cold knocks me on my butt (like it did the past 2 days), I can't help but think fondly of the days when my head doesn't hurt, my throat feels normal, and I can think clearly.

Maybe it's good to be sick once in awhile - it makes us remember we're not invincible.

Being sick reminds me to be grateful for the health I've been blessed with. It reminds me to take care of my body and get plenty of sleep/drink lots of water. (And maybe I should keep my distance from students...ha ha...)

That being said, it's off to bed for me. Yes it's 8 o'clock. Yes I am trying to combat this wicked cold.

I can do it...I can do it...
