Cheering for the "other" team. . .

I received this in an email on Friday at work. I watched it and I cried. I watched it again today and I cried. I think that I could watch it everyday and cry. But as the tears were streaming down my face, my heart was smiling. This is what compassion is and this is what we are put on this earth to do. As I wake up each morning, it's this selfless compassion that I hope to remember and portray. Every child, every person, deserves a chance to prove themselves. Sometimes, as christians, its up to us to cheer for the other team.

Here's to hoping we all remember to cheer for the "other" team!

A Shopping Trip. . .

Guess what I did today after work today? I went School Shopping! Yep, that's right. I have finally taken the plunge and am heading back to school. If all goes as planned I will be starting classes tomorrow to begin work on my Masters. I am getting my masters in Special Education with emphasis in MD (mental disabilities) and ED (emotional disabilities). I am excited and nervous all at the same time! Why in the world is a 31 year old nervous about starting school?! After all, of the 31 years I have been on this earth 16 have been spent in school (so what's another year and a half!) If you have a minute, say a little prayer that all goes well!
