Looking forward to summer...

I am so ready for the school year to be over. For those who read who may not know, I am an educational assistant working with special education students. This year has been very challenging and stressful for anyone in the public education system...wage cutbacks, colleagues getting laid off, added to the "normal" stress of working with high needs kids. I think I am down to 15 working days left before summer break.

I love, love, love that I get summers off. This is what a perfect summer morning is to me...
I would wake up when my body had enough sleep. It would, of course, be a sunny day. I am not a big sleep late person...but neither am I one who enjoys waking up before the sun does. I guess I am neither a morning or a late person....I am a 7 to 7:30 a.m. person to between 10 and 11 p.m. person. Coffee would be already brewed and brought to me by my loving husband...which, fortunately for me, does happen most days. What a guy! Then he would leave me quietly alone for one to two hours to pray, journal and read the Bible. This is to me what real luxury is...time, time, wonderful time with peace and quiet and Jesus. Now if all of this happened in a house in a warm climate, and a view of, that would be even more perfect! But even here, in not so tropical southeast Portland, with nothing but a view of my neighbor's house, I can still have all the rest of my perfect morning...and I will in only a few more weeks...YIPPEEEE!
