five minute friday

Linking up for Five Minute Friday hosted by the gypsy mama.

It's Friday morning, there is no school today, and I am wide awake. I have been since about 20 minutes after my alarm usually goes off.

I grabbed the cat, shoved her under the covers, and told sweet hubby "Merry Christmas". He wasn't very amused, starting scratching my head to get me to go back to sleep...but I am awake.

Awake, and awakening, and growing in awareness. Last weekend was a wake-up call to me. We had a couple of friends over to watch movies on Saturday night, and by Sunday, sweet hubby and I were not on speaking terms.

When we finally spoke again, late on Tuesday, I said painful words to sweet hubby....
If you are the person who was in my living room on Saturday night, then I don't want to know you.

--I'm not.--

Then you will have to show me.

And so we are both awakening to the task of rediscovering how to be good to one another, kind, respectful, building one another up as we relearn how to love one another the way we used to.



Reaching and stretching towards the day, embracing the challenge.

On a totally unrelated note, if you'd like to support my classroom....or any classroom....check out donors choose!
