Company Girl Coffee and OH What a Week


I am having afternoon coffee at my blog today!  Today was our second day back with kids, so I am sitting back and enjoying a cup of joe after a long day of teaching.  Thanks for joining me!!

This week marked my return to work after a FABULOUS Christmas break. Boy oh boy did I need those two weeks to recharge.  I enjoyed every second of it.

It was nice to go back and see my kiddos, and I loved hearing about their Christmas adventures.  However, it's amazing to me how quickly my body gets out of teacher mode.  My feet hurt from standing all day, and my throat hurts from talking all day long.  I need to build up my endurance again.

Yesterday was a bit nerve wracking for me.  I had to have a biopsy done, and am awaiting news on whether or not it is cancerous.  It would mean so much to me if you could pray for a positive outcome.  The whole experience has led me to think about how very blessed I am, and how very much I have to be thankful for.  I have a husband I adore, three of the best boys on earth, and a job that I love and feel called to do.  It doesn't get much better than that.  So, today I am thankful for all of my blessings, and I am hopeful that this health concern comes to a positive end.  I am finding comfort in knowing that whatever the outcome, the Lord is walking next to me, and will help me to face any challenges that may be coming my way.

Happy weekend everyone!  I hope you have many opportunities to enjoy your blessings  :)

Love and best wishes for the biopsy. I teach too and totally get the way we have to get back into it after a break.

I felt the same way after my first day back at work...sore feet!

I prayed for you to have peace beyond understanding and for a positive outcome. Let us know when you get the answer!

Praying you get good results but I know that no matter what, there is a Father in Heaven that will be with you no matter what and He is good all the time!

Blessings this week!

I just wanted to let you know that my prayers are with you.

I'm sure you'll get back in teacher mode soon. Kids have a way of doing that to teachers.

Ok, so this isn't the best forum to express concern, but I'm thinking of you! (I'd pray, but... you know.)
