The Four Unrecoverable Things


  1. So true and we have all been in similar situations, haven't we?

  2. Indeed we have...more times than *I* would personally care to count!

  3. Been there...

    And then you are left with what could have been?

    No way to say I am sorry.

    The words you can't take back. Sometimes even if you can say your sorry to the person the words still hang there, like a dark cloud over your head.

    I need to remember to forgive myself in these times, as sometimes I hold onto things for way longer than the other person prolly did. And they have moved on but I am still there hurting myself for refusing to forgive myself.

    Peace and blessings upon you girlfriend,


  4. For Children's Time at church one Sunday, I did an experiement with the children. I had one squeeze toothpaste out onto a piece of paper. I told another child to put the toothpaste back in the tube. Of course some of it he got in, but there was still a trail of toothpaste that he couldn't get into the tube. Moral of the story: words can't be taken back...even if you apologize for them.

    But must learn to forgive yourself for the simple fact that we are not perfect and we make some pretty stupid mistakes. If He forgives us, shouldn't we be able to forgive ourselves?

  5. Very wise words. Thank you for sharing them.

Life as a Paraprofessional vs Life as a Teacher: Part 1

Life as a Paraprofessional vs. Life as a Teacher: Part 3

This is the third part to a 3-part series chronicling my take on the differences between a job as a paraprofessional and a job as a teacher. (View Part 1 here and Part 2 here.)

Let me preface this list by saying that I believe that paras and teachers have the potential to equally rock the education world. They can love and nurture students in a way that only an educator can. They can help students become great.

That said - there are some definite differences between paraprofessionals and teachers. This list is not to say one is better than the other. Rather this is meant as a tongue-in-cheek comparison of how I perceive the differences of a paraprofessional's job and a teacher's job. (And any teacher who has worked as a para or vice versa should be able to relate to my list.)

{Planners for the Rest of Us} 2016 Uncalendar End-of-Year-Review

It has been just about a year since I started using the Uncalendar my mother gifted me last year. I received another one this year (this time, from The Man Beast). I thought it would be an excellent time to update readers on my usage of the Uncalendar this past year - what worked and what didn't.

If you have fifteen minutes to spare, feel free to click on the link below in order to see the video version of this post.

The Uncalendar Lifestyles Pro is a three-ring binder undated planner that comes in red, blue, or black. I received the full-size version, but the company also provides a half-size version of both the Pro and the regular Lifestyles version. The Uncalendar website has pictures of their products as well as upclose screen shots of the pages. The company also provides a skills center meant to help Uncalendar users get the most out of their planner.

After watching just a handful of Uncalendar videos (seriously, there aren't a whole lot available - at least when you co…
