Happy Thanksgiving

thanksgiving Pictures, Images and Photos


Yesterday I went to a funeral for the husband of a friend. I got lost and ended up coming in just before services. The parking lot was mostly empty, and when I walked in I didn't see a lot of people, though there was already a row and a half of teachers.

By the end of the service, there were four rows of teachers, dozens, including her principal, VP and counselor, the secretary and teaching assistants. I was so impressed to see the support that her friends and colleagues offered her. Yes, we were off school, but people are busy the day before Thanksgiving, and not only did they come to the service, but also back to the house. We left after 6:30.

And while we were there for a very sad reason, we talked and laughed and reconnected. We've all moved away from Norma's school, some are in different districts and different towns, even, but coming back together was so easy.

I have to say I'm grateful to Cindi, because she--I don't want to say "forces," but "encourages" isn't strong enough--me to stay connected to these people. She's the one who pulls people together and keeps people in contact.

In other news, my books were listed on Astatalk, a piracy site. ARGLE.

I worked on promo yesterday. Today I'm working on Christmas stuff. Trying to remember what it is I usually bake at Christmas...
