* husband who cooked ginger pancakes with peaches for supper
* other teachers at school, wiser ones than me, who help me - collaboration
* students laughing with me and not at me - a good rapport - this is truly a Gift from God! (and from St. Raphael & St. Moses, whom I have been asking to pray for me regarding school)
* a Second Grade teacher who truly looks after my son
* open doors concerning job opportunities for my husband
* reading Iggy Peck Architect and Buffalo Wings with my kids on the couch tonight.
* Akathist prayers that offer comfort and put words to ideas that I knew I needed to pray but hadn't the exact phrases
* a comfortable bed to nest into at night
