Thankful, Thoughtful Thursday

This week has flown by. We are already starting the second half of the school year!

This week there have been many things to be happy/thankful for:

1. I received the most beautiful necklace from Erin of Tesori Trovati (which I won). It has a copper chain with what I call a dreamcatcher on it. She has called this piece "Power of Positive Dreams". It will become my talisman to achieve my dreams.

2. I received more ATCs in the mail from swaps that I have done - they are such a treat to open up!

3. We have started a 20 minute DPA (daily physical activity) at school that involves dance/cardio and stretches. What a way to get moving, work out, have fun and focus on Heart Healthy Month! The children love it - so do I!

4. I have been enjoying visiting many blogs through One World One Heart - so many great giveaways. Be sure to visit - before Feb. 15!

5. I am so thankful for special programmes for special kids. I nominated one of my boys who has a real curious, obsessive mind but very weak fine motor skills for a gifted 3-day session. He is so excited tp start tomorrow. I hope this will reveal more of his strengths.

6. I am thankful for another week of safe driving to and from work.

7. I am thankful for two women (bloggers) who are keen to do ATC swaps with me! It is the first ones I will have done.

8. I am most thankful for family - they know why!

Great list! I especially enjoyed #3. I've been trying to add more exercise and movement into my daily routine, and every time I do, I feel so much brighter and more energetic.

#5, too, is so touching--I'm so grateful and glad to know that there are teachers like you in the school systems, looking out for the kids who most need it...and every one else, too. :) You have such a caring heart.
