It's always good to end the week on a positive note. Sometimes we concentrate on the negatives. We have a choice. Choose positive. Choose to celebrate. I will be joining Ruth Ayres and her weekly link-up, Celebrate This Week. Check out all the other celebrations HERE
I've heard how quickly life can change. i found that out this morning. In the grand scheme of things, it's not a big deal. It's a back injury. Just a really really badly pulled? strained? muscle. It happened this morning at the gym. It's amazing how fast you can be moving around like always and how fast you can't. I can hardly move right now and when I do it's very painful. I'll get better, but it's going to take some time. I'm just hoping I can move around enough to be at school next week!
I'm going to celebrate that this injury was not worse than what it could have been. Not a life changing injury, thank God. A bump, albeit a painful one, in the road.
And while I couldn't be at work today, I did get a lot of reading done. I'm so behind, and while I won't catch up, it was nice having a quiet house and time to read.
But before all this, I was celebrating Picture Book Month! I had not heard of this celebration before, but definitely wanted to honor it in some way. I work with a group of children where the act of reading is a challenge. I don't want them to lose a love for it, so I figured reading some fantastic books to them would be a great idea. I started this week by telling them what we were celebrating and bringing in 5 books. Each day, one student would select the book we would read and then they would take turns bringing them home to read and share with their families. They were thrilled and excited for each day. Books I shared this week:
I think next week I am going to surprise them and wrap the books up. I'll let you know next week what books we celebrate!
