My family is everything to me. Although I don’t think they always know it. As I told you on my “Contemplation” page I am a thinker and I am always striving to do more. Because of this I feel I have neglected to spend as much time with my family as I should have. Even when I am physically spending time with them, my mind is off somewhere else—thinking, but I am working really hard to change my way of thinking (no pun intended) and truly enjoy time with the people who mean so much to me.
Besides being a thinker, I am also a teacher and I love it, but I so often let it consume all of my time. My husband tells people that he says good-bye to me in August and welcomes me home in May. I would get angry at him, but it is the truth. I am working to find that happy medium, so that I can still teach my students with the enthusiasm and love that I have always done and at the same time, give my family the mom, wife, daughter, and grandma they deserve.
