I got the idea from another blog to be a part of Project 365 - to take one picture for each day of the year. Here is my year in pictures...this beautiful mess.

15 January 2010 - 15/365: "I Will Stand"
I work in a private school, and today we had a dress-down day as a fundraiser for Haiti. The students were to give whatever was on their heart, and they were to dress in hand-me-down type clothes to empathize with those who have lost everything and might have to rely on others for the basic necessities, such as clothing. Those who participated were given a sticker to wear that says, 'I will stand and pray for Haiti.' Today, we raised $5,535. 65. I am so proud of our school family. (The picture below is not of the best quality - I was in a rush taking it before class started! - but I wanted everyone to see some of the faces of these great kids.).
Hi all! I'm just a girl whose got some thoughts and stories to share with those who are willing to read. And I'm OK if that's just me. I'm a devoted follower of Jesus, a wife, a high school English teacher on Long Island, a mom to too-many-cats (I blame my husband for that), and hopefully, to a real baby, as soon as God blesses us. I'm 38almost39, been married for almost 3 years, and have lived in NY for my whole life( and that equal TOO LONG!). I've also known Jesus almost my whole life, and that can never be LONG ENOUGH. I believe that the human experience is a mix of the beautiful and the tragic, but the hand of God is able to redeem it all. I'm writing this blog because I need to write this, but I hope it might mean something to you as well.
