Currently and a facebook giveaway

I love Farley's Currentlys. They are a fun way to record what is going on at this moment in time. They are also fun to read. I love reading everyone else's currently. I'm actually not that late to the party this month since it's on the second.

I really want to clarify my thinking one and make a plea to my readers. On of our fourth grade teachers has 3 boys. The youngest has been in the hospital since the first of November. They orginally thought it was a virus attacking his brain but this past weekedn we found that it is brain cancer. He has 3 tumors on his brain. This family has been so strong these past few months. The boy is in the 6th grade and he has the most precious smile. His name is Regan and he needs so many prayers. Please pray for healing for Regan and comfort for his family. I have been so amazed at this family going through so much, yet living out the Christian life. His dad has asked me everytime I see him, how I'm doing and how my healing from surgery is. I have faith that God has great plans for Regan and that he can heal him. It has been so cool to see our community and school come together and Root for this boy. The other explanation is for my one little word. I want to be more intentional with my relationships with people and try to reconnect with some old friends. I also want to be intentional with my teaching and my planning and try to find the best ways to meet all my students' needs. I also want to be intentional with my blogging and creating. To blog about real ideas and things going on in my classroom. To also create things that I truly use and not just to create to create. Last thing for today, is I'm having a giveaway over on my facebook page. You should check it out if you haven't Yet. 


  1. hello!
    When I read your post today I was very moved. The illness of a child is so difficult to handle for any family, school, etc. My prayers go out to you and his family. I also think its great to reconnect with old friends. We tend to get in the grind and just live each day waiting for the next instead of living it to the fullest! Best wishes. Tuesday

  2. Love your one little word and your story about Regan!

    I will definitely keep him and his family in my prayers too! Sounds like a precious little boy.

    Hope you heal from your surgery quickly!!

  6. Hearing about a sick child is difficult. I currently have a student that could possibly have....C. Can't even say the word. Just praying it isn't. I love your word...Intension. Powerful and meaningful!

  7. Thanks for sharing your story. Prayers are powerful and now they have ours!! We just have to remember that God has a plan and SOMETHING good is going to come from this. I'm super jealous that you still have 5 days off, though. Keep resting. We went back today and I'm exhausted! :)

    I'm also hosting a linky party to help out the kids at Sandy Hook who experienced something they shouldn't have. It's a little different than the standard link up...but totally worth it. ;)
