A celebration of life and a SALE

Wednesday, February 27, 2013
Today is bittersweet!  It's my beautiful mom's birthday...and if you have followed me for anytime now you know how special she was and how much I miss her.  I was so honored and blessed to be raised by her.  Cancer is so devastating and effects so many.  Just yesterday my little one who just came back for the first time this year from battling cancer gave me a very special gift.  She had some dog tags made and on one side it says Fight like a Girl and the other side has her face sketched into it.  I asked if they had a bunch made and they said only a few and I was one to receive one.  OK - tears!!!!  I felt so honored and am just so happy that I'm her teacher.  What a blessing and an inspiration she continues to be to me.
My mom ~ well I could talk about her forever...what an amazing lady, teacher, wife , mother, daughter and friend.  In honor of her I'm having a sale today...I will continue it for a little bit in the morning tomorrow for my email followers.  Give your mom a hug today for me...that's all I ask in return. xoxox

  4. Dear Vicky,

    You were very blessed to have such a special lady as your mom, and thanks to that you have been a real blessing for many of us in the blog world. I'm not quite sure when I was so lucky to find your class page (Mrs. Moore Busy Bees), but since that moment you change the way I teach. Through the years you've been a constant inspiration and source. Thanks God you had an incredible model to follow, because now we have you!!!!!

    Sweet Blessings & Learning Treats
