Celebrate This Week
Today, I celebrate making it through, but I also celebrate the memory of a dear friend.
Ten years ago when I finished my first ever first day of school, I stopped by my mentor teacher's house on my way home and out walked her husband with a Popsicle. It was the best gift I never knew that I wanted.
After a whole day of talking, your throat gets dry, hot and tired. A Popsicle is a sweet, cold oasis.
At the end of the day, I went around and celebrated each teacher who was awesome and made it through the first day of school with a sweet, cold oasis. It was an incredible way to celebrate the first day of school and the memory of an amazing man.
