Veteran’s Day, Being Thankful, and Helping a Teacher in Need

Happy Veteran’s Day Weekend! As I mentioned Friday, I was honored to be honored by the veterans I honor when I was asked to ride on their float in yesterday’s parade. Well, when I got there, I was overwhelmed by their love. One of their kids had made me a sign to hold in the parade. It made me nervous, but it was quite the honor. Who cares if “teacher” was misspelled?



Don’t forget to stop by my TPT store for a big sale this weekend. 20% off many Thanksgiving and Christmas items in honor of Veteran’s Day. 

I can’t believe that it is almost Thanksgiving! I am just so thankful for all I have in life. No matter what, or how many problems I wake up to, I have to be thankful for a wonderful life. :) I had to share this:


That brings me to some sad news. A fellow teacher at TPT is critically ill and fighting for survival. The teachers at TPT are joining together to try to raise funds to help! Please read below about this loving effort and please join us in helping Teresa and her family get through this crisis:

Thanks for helping!

this post who has not heard of Teachers Pay Teachers, better known as TPT.  Not only is it a great site for teachers to share
their wonderful teaching ideas, it is also a place of true heartfelt kinship with
other teachers and many of the teachers form virtual bonds with each other in
friendship.  This is one of those times.

One of my best friends, 2nd grade teaching buddy, fellow blogger and TPTer is in CCU in Atlanta with critical medical issues. 


I asked for all of my wonderful friends on TPT to help pray for her.  Prayers have been sent up for Teresa from all over the world.  I truly believe that prayer can bring about miracles and Teresa is certainly in need of prayers.


These very wonderful and special teachers then began asking, “What can we do to help?”


Out of their love and concern came

In addition, several teachers have joined in another collaborative effort to form a piggy unit (Teresa’s favorite kind).  This unit is available on my store for $10.  All proceeds will also be given to Teresa to help with financial needs.
