Tuesday's Tribute..It's Time To Give Back
So Jay has started this new Tuesday idea. I love the idea of focusing one someone else vs myself. Because the truth be known I am about over myself..and maybe some of you are over me too..lol
So...what am I to do when there is a list a mile long of people who have supported me in more ways then I can ever begin to explain?
This week I will play tribute to My special Friends at CCS. Check back cause there are so many tributes to give..we may be here for years to come. How is that for a positive attitude?
I got the biggest surprise earlier last week. Philip's school sent me these flowers. They were so pretty and such a BIG surprise. One thing I wanted to share is how much the card meant to me. I opened it and sat on my bed and cried. Philip has been at CCS for 13 years. Over the years I have gotten to know so many wonderful special teachers. When I opened the card I read messages from all the teachers and staff at CCS. Teachers starting with Philip from first grade signed this card. I always have to laugh..I knew most of them before marriage and babies. I guess that is why when some signed the card they had their maiden names on there too. LOL.
This card was such a special message to me. It is something I will keep forever. Thank You for the beautiful flowers...Tulips are my favorite and these were beautiful.
Also a special thank you to Miss Bailey. This may sound silly but she has the sweetest voice when she says Good Morning when I call school about Philip. She sign's Philip's guest book every time I update. And like yesterday I get out of the blue this sweet email asking how I was and telling me she is there if I need to talk to her. Plus she is a great message giver to Mrs Earls the principal. LOL. Love ya both.
I also wanted to thank Mrs Earls ( Philip's Principal) at CCS. First and most important for helping me help Philip with decisions about school. She has held my hand in his education for yeses now. She blessed me last year with a call telling me she was going to have someone come in while Philip was in the hospital to help me get the house ready for him to come home. I can not even begin to tell you what a blessing that was for our family. You will never know the weight that took off my shoulders. Thank you for caring and offering so much love and support for Philip and our family.
