Yesterday, I was thankful to have the option to take a sick day when I needed it.
While I'm not really into the cutesy pics with misspelled headings, this one is pretty cute, and is definitely the cutest of the "sick day" images I could find :) (source)
I am so grateful that I have sick days built up and that I was able to sleep in until 9 yesterday and recover somewhat from this cold I got on Sunday.
Today, I am thankful that my students are overall really sweet. One has brought me an apple for snack a few times,
and it has really made my morning to not only have a delicious snack, but to feel like my students care. I also appreciated that my students missed me when I was gone. After last year, having a group of kids who is genuinely caring is so very wonderful.
I am also thankful to have a caring principal, who left me leave the staff meeting early since I wasn't feeling well, and told me that I should stay home tomorrow, too, if I'm not feeling better. Of course, there always feels like there is too much to do, so I don't think I will actually stay home - hopefully an evening of no talking will put my voice back to normal :). Still, I do feel thankful to work at such a great school.
Tomorrow, I hope to be thankful for a speedy recovery from this cold!
