I'm grateful to Diana for coming up with this idea. I makes me stop and think (an activity that is beneficial to everybody:)).
I'm grateful to Rosie and Briscoe (our dogs) for getting up in a good mood every morning. They're ready for adventure. Yahoo! Let's have breakfast and go for a walk! Come on everybody! Let's go, go, go! Their attitude is contagious. It also amazes us. Jim asks, "How do they do it every morning?"
I'm grateful to my high school Spanish teacher, Mr. Sergio Alvarez. He gave me an excellent foundation for learning the Spanish language. Although I'm not fluent, I can get by. I took Mr. Alvarez's classes many, many years ago. I'm gearing up for the new school year and I plan to use some of Mr. Alvarez's ideas in my English classes this year. It doesn't matter what language you're teaching or learning; certain principles remain the same. Mr. Alvarez was an excellent teacher. Maybe, someday, I will be, too.
I'm grateful to the people who have taken time to view and comment on my blog. Oh, how that brightens my day!
I'm grateful to Jim for being so nice to me.
