Gratitude Day 5

 Yesterday was Thanksgiving and apparently the one day of the year we are encouraged, no required, to express our gratitude for other people. I don't have a lot of gratitude for most people. Seriously. I find them to be petty and annoying and many times not worth the effort. Wow!! That sounds bad, but it's true. I have little use for the human race as a whole. However, there are lots of people that I like and enjoy being around. Yesterday some friends came over and it was fun. We sat around and watched the longest football game in the history of the world, seriously it seemed to take forever and then it went into overtime!!!! But it was nice, just talking, relaxing, watching football. Then we ate a good meal. It was really nice. I'm grateful for the friends and the opportunity to sit around and relax and enjoy. 

I'm also grateful for the friends I have at work. I don't make friends easily, see the above paragraph, but I've made some friends at work that I really enjoy and they definitely make life easier at school. 

I'm super grateful for the kids I get to teach. Yes, they are frustrating and annoying and many days I want to throw my hands up and walk away. But they are also funny and smart and generally fun to be around. Plus I really do love what I do. I love teaching. It is absolutely what I'm meant to be doing. 

Okay, I think that is enough for today.  I'm kind of gratitude out after this week. I can see this being a thing but I need to maybe pick one thing every day instead of writing a whole blog post. Maybe a gratitude thing at the end of a post.
