You all know I teach preschool and I must say it has been a blessing this year. Those kids have kept me going. They are the reason I am out of bed each day. My own children are in school all day and I just don't know what I would have done this year if I was home alone all day. Anyway, Mom died just 6 weeks after school had started and for whatever reason these little kids have been very intune to the fact that "teacher Jenny's Mom is in heaven now". I am not sure's not like I talk about it to them...but the other day I had this sweet, thought provoking conversation.

preschooler: "Jenny, how did your Mommy get to heaven?"

me: "Well, she just got sick."

preschooler: "Was she sick with cancer?"

me: "No, she was not sick with cancer. Why do you ask?"

preschooler: "Well, my cat got hit by a car and that is how he got to heaven so I was just wondering if you Mommy got to heaven by cancer."

I am really not sure of this child's thought process but it brought tears to my eyes that whatever is going on at home....a cat dying and possibly knowing someone sick or that has died from cancer .... made her think of me. What a wonderful job I have!

That is sweet.

BTW, the swim suits are from Victoria's secret.....just like any other article of clothing he buys me. I wonder if it's just an excuse to look at the catalog?.... J/k

yes, I have been toying with the idea of going home for Memorial Day but it don't think it will work out. The boys have the father and sons and Alyssa has to work. I don't want to go alone so that plan is off! I will see you Friday! Love ya
