Fabulous Friday Button

We should always find ways to celebrate the little things in life. What better day to celebrate these little things than the best day of the week? So, here are the things that make this a Fabulous Friday for me this week.

We made it through another week of “What the hell is the president doing?” Somehow.

  • The best type of phone call – Earlier this week, Jim received a voicemail from Holly’s principal. This typically is not the type of voicemail you want to hear, but when he listened to the message he got a huge surprise. She was not calling with bad news but to share a teacher brag about Holly. It seems that one of her teachers was in the office sharing his glee at having her in class, admiring her critical thinking skills, her poise, her kindness, her positive attitude, her willingness to have an open discussion about difficult topics. The principal felt it was something we needed to hear. She even went on to thank us for raising her. Never would I have thought we would receive a call like that, and it makes me feel so good to listen to her comments. When everything else seems to have gone to shit, that message is a shining beacon of light and hope that we aren’t totally horrible parents.
