Sunday Smorgasboard and a Request

Today I'm linking up with Fabulous in First for a Sunday Smorgasboard.

What a week it has been.  If you remember, a couple Tuesday's back my poor pup got loose and was hit by a car.  Quite a few hundred dollars and a few vet visits later and he is doing great.  He seems to be healing nicely and is back to enjoying life again. 

This past Tuesday we found out that someone very close to me, someone that I love dearly, has cancer.  What a scary word that is!!  No one in my family or my husband's immediate family has ever had to deal with that so this was quite a shock for both us.  YES, we've been very blessed to not be affected by cancer for all this time.  It seems that with the diagnosis your whole world changes.  Life seems to fall apart and you are left picking up the pieces.  

This is a verse from one of my favorite songs because no matter where I've been in life, through good times and bad, I've never walked alone.  I know that my God is faithful and He will see us through this.  I'm thankful for His constant love and protection. 

By the way if you've never heard that song, you can check it out by clicking here.  

I know that none of that has anything to do with teaching but it's honestly where my heart is on this lazy Sunday and I felt like sharing it!  

Well, my first anniversary as a blogger is coming up as well as 100 followers, it appears.  Since I will likely be hitting them both around the same time (August 1), I would like to have a giveaway on my blog to celebrate.  Please check out the form below (I hope it works!!!) and let me know if you would like to join my giveaway.  As part of the rafflecopter, I will have guests like your blog, store, and facebook page in order to get entries.  

Thank you for reading along!!!  I hope you have a great week!  

Be sure to check back tomorrow for a classroom freebie!
