We Survived.....

I hope that you all had a restful weekend filled with all of the things that bring you true joy.  Ours was a quiet, restful - much needed R&R kind of weekend that could not come soon enough....and just as quickly slipped by.....

Thank you all so much for the "love" that you sent last week....it paid off...my son passed his end of grade tests with flying colors....and growth!!!  Thank you, thank you, thank you ALL!!!

Today at work begins the remediation for those that did not pass....sigh....the thought of having to go through another testing session just makes me wish for summer vacation to come on already....  I can't stand it....

Which leads me to my studio thoughts....
I just want to be FREE!!!!  Not in my box thats room 131, but free to spend my days as I wish....sigh...
Theres a little dream that is planted in my heart....and, I'm working to grow it.  Some days it feels so far away, and I constantly remind myself--"Don't you dare give up!!"
Enjoy your day everyone.
Until next time,
Ophelia

That a powerful journal spread, the symbolism really says it. Dreams can feel like vapours sometimes, had to hang onto. But take a firm grip with those tired hands..your worth it

oh my, you just repeated the words that have been pounding in my head: but free to spend my days as I wish. This has been a constant thought in my mind for the past couple of years. The journal pages are beautiful.

Hi Ophelia,
Thank you so much for visiting my blog and for your lovely comments.
I just became a Follower of your blog. Can you please become a Follower of my blog too? I would really appreciate it. :)
From what I read you must be a teacher. What grade do you teach?
I love your journal pages.
Keep well and congratulations to your son.

Here is to the end of school and the beginning of a wonderful summer! I have many teacher friends in the same boat...and they can't wait to have free weekends that they aren't thinking about schoolsupplies, lesson plans...etc. (and most of all , then I will have people to do things with)
