My People!

Today we donned our new
“We are OC”

 shirts the boss got for us. 

I loved matching my co-workers. It might seem kind of goofy to others, but to me, it was like being part of a cool club. I loved the unity. 

I love to see the pride we all take in our work and our school. I especially love to be a part of all the excitement we have for Monday. 

We get to usher a new year in with our students! (BIG CRAZY SMILEY FACE HERE)

I thank God for my OC family. 

They are MY PEOPLE!   

Here are a few pics of the crazy group as we were going outside to pose for this year’s campus photo:

  

   

  

 Like I said, MY PEOPLE!

And to end this blog today, I want to praise and thank God for blessing OCHS with two leaders that are HIS people. It’s a great feeling to have bosses who know Jesus. I truly have been blessed throughout my years as a teacher to have Godly administrators. 

 They were both a little worried when I wanted to take a picture of them today, because apparently I’m a bit malicious when it comes to embarrassing photos or videos. Not the case today! I wanted to show these two off as my blessings… 

My people, but most of all—

GOD’S PEOPLE.

Can’t make EVERYONE happy.

“Do what you feel in your heart to be right – for you’ll be criticized anyway.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

This quote came to mind today mainly because so many people are quick to criticize the weather people when we should all keep in mind what their job really entails.  The human race, some more than others, love to criticize others no matter what their job, opinion or actions.  This will always be… that is why I like the Roosevelt quote.  She is so right.  There will always be those who hate on you.  Haters gonna hate.

If you look at any weather forecaster and their record of predictions, we should already know they cannot do their job to perfection (WHO REALLY CAN!  There is always room for improvement!).  THEY are not IN CONTROL of what the weather does.  They can only guess, but calling them Weather Guessers just doesn’t sound right.  Forecasters try to predict correctly with tools and calculations, but sometimes that task is like trying to lasso the wind.   This is definitely true in our part of the world.  Texas weather is crazy!

We are in the middle of a snow day.  It’s a freezing cold, stay at home from school kind of snow day.  This is the kind of day students, no matter what age, LOVE.   From the wide-eyes of a 10 year old at the site of a winter wonderland to the actuality of sleeping in of a 16 year old, it’s all love.  I, as a teacher, would rather not miss a day of work only to have to make it up later, but I must say, I do love seeing the excitement of my children.  (birth and non-birth ones)

The weather here in Northeast Texas as much of Texas is so unpredictable.  Sometimes it makes me crazy, but most of the time, as with any situation, I REJOICE IN IT!  The snow today is beautiful.  I don’t want to touch it, but it’s beautiful.

I totally admit, I’m not a cold weather lover, but without it, how would I really know that the Texas 90 plus degree summer days are my favorite?  I wouldn’t.  If we didn’t have dark days, how would we truly appreciate the light?  We wouldn’t!  If there weren’t valleys, how could we be in awe of the mountains?  I think you get where I’m going.

I’m just trying to say, give this day and everyday a chance.  Stop being quick to criticize and more quick to find the silver lining, the bright spot…THE JOY!  LOVE, don’t hate.

It is TOTALLY true that you can’t make everyone happy, but you can make YOU happy…just by your attitude.  Find the happiness and joy, rejoice in THAT.  Change your attitude even tho, EVEN THEN, you…

Can’t make EVERYONE happy.
