Thank You!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

For all the SITs visitors today I extend a warm thanks for all the bloggy love! I had a wonderful little welcome post for you to all read today. I had it set to publish automatically at 12:01 this morning; however, I went in and made a few corrections yesterday and I guess that it deleted the auto-publish time...so it never appeared...sheesh....here it is in case any of you come back to read my blog again!

I solemnly promise that I will visit each and everyone of you that visited (I had well over 300 emails today just from SITS comments!)....but it might not be until this weekend.

Also, thank you for the encouraging words about my blog post Banquet Begets Sermonette many of you encouraged me to write sermons, inspirationals and to teach Sunday School. Thank you for the encouragement. I love to write and funny enough after reading those comments I was reminded of a prophetic word I received when I was about 20 the word was that the words that I write will set people free. I had completely had forgotten about that! God has not called me to be a preacher (even though we all should share His word and love) but a teacher; however, I will try to write some more and if I do I will definitely share it with you all!

Ok...so below is the post that was supposed to show up this morning for you all....
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I know I said I wouldn't be around much as I have added student teaching to my already full plate; however, I received an email from Heather over at SITS (The Secret is in The Sauce) that my day was coming soon! And that day is TODAY!!! Welcome everyone girl (and guy) from SITS.....here is a warm welcome to you!

(Do you still not know what SITS is all my non-SITS friends..and by the way why aren't you a SITSa? Hmmmm!!! SITS is an awesome family of bloggers who show unconditional bloggy love to everyone from here to there and back again! It is a great place to meet new friends and read new blogs. So what are you waiting for? Go check them out!)

Ok, back to my SITS visitors....Come on in.....

My house is your house!

As you enter, please be careful of all the snow and ice that you might encounter on the way to the front door (I keep asking Mother Nature what the Hell she is doing with this year's winter and all she does in drop more snow!!! Then she reminds me that there is still two more months of Winter...ugh)!

The refrigerator is bare; however, there are pop-tarts in the cupboard and some red wine on the counter...help yourselves (I'm sure that they taste great together!).

I have cable, so come on sit down and watch Disney with me...is it strange that I am 34, single and watch Disney? I guess I have my 10-year old niece to thank for that!

You can open the front closet and pull out a game if you'd like...we just played Candy Land the other day so I can recommend that, or there is Monopoly, Life, Rummikub, etc....pick one and have fun!

Even if you can only stop for a few minutes have fun looking around (I have nothing to hide and probably share more than anybody wants to read about!)....feel free to poke here and there (I have some great pictures hidden in the archives (check February and March of the past few years as I was in SE Asia a few years in a row)....and all the kids you see in the pictures? NOT MINE!!! I am Auntie to 8 and "Auntie" to many, many more...there is always some kid's picture on here!

And always, when you see:



Remember to leave some bloggy love!

Blessings

CONGRATS! My day was on Monday and I loved every second of it! I'm still catching up, and I think I've developed carpal tunnel. But I loved it!!!

Stopping by from SITS. Great plug, BTW. Good luck with the teaching career & don't worry, I have kids & still watch Disney without them. Sometimes that's the only wholesome thing on tv, aside from the food network.

Happy FB Day!

Emily said...

New to SITS... wanted to say congrats!!!!

Katie said...

Ha, this was funny and I'm glad you posted it still. So welcoming and written so feel just like you're talkin' to me! I'm going to go and read your other featured posts, so I don't know what grade you're student teaching but good luck! Been there, done that and it's a challenging time to say the least. I think you should try to keep on blogging during ST because the stories you'll have will be priceless and hoot. Hope that your cooperating teacher is nice and not passively aggressive about having you take over her class like mine was. Why on earth sign up for a student teacher if you're too much of a control freak to let her do anything on her own her own way!

I hope you enjoying student teaching.
