Since it's Valentine's Day, I am taking a few moments to celebrate love. (Cliche, I know, but I can't help it.)
* The love of my husband who has been my partner in life for 20 years. Our love has grown, been tested, and made stronger over the years. He is an amazing husband and father and I'm very lucky that we found each other.
* The love I feel for my two children. They are both growing into amazing adults. I am proud to be their mom.
* The love I feel for teaching. I didn't become a teacher until after trying out several other careers (including being a stay-at-home mom for 10 years). However, there is no doubt in my mind that I am living my passion every day.
* My love of learning. Some people may feel that learning stops once you leave the classroom. There may have been a time in my life when I felt this way too, but I definitely don't any more.
What love are you celebrating this week?
