Guest bloggers? and Teacher Gifts

 Where did the school year go?  I can't believe it's the end of the year already and come September, we will have a kindergartner and a third grader.  For this year's teacher gifts, we used the same idea we used for Mother's Day (that I originally found on Pinterest).  We filled a jar with goodies for pampering and Little Miss decorated the jars for her preschool teachers.  She found some leftover Easter stickers, thus the eggs :).  Evan probably won't be as willing to personalize his, so a signature will have to do.

During my chemo weeks, I have some dry spells with my blog and it's sometimes hard for me to post.  So, I thought perhaps some of you, my regular readers would like to be guest bloggers.  Yes?  You could write about a recent house project, favorite book, and or just go off on a tangent about anything you wish (within reason of course).  Leave a comment if you're interested.  Come on, don't be shy.

Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again And what do we teach our children? We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we also teach them what they are?

We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move.

You may become a Shakespeare, a Michaelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel?

You must work, we must all work, to make the world worthy of its children.

Hi Linda,
I would love to be a quest blogger for you. I will be away at Kristen's Last nationals dance competition until next Thursday, but I could do it after I get back. I might have lots to say about that, LOL
