Back again for yet another blog. It's been about a week since my last one, and what a busy week it was! Teaching 2nd graders (including my own) for the whole week was a lot of work, but a lot of fun too. I had forgotten how rewarding it can be. 🙂 All of the lesson planning and making copies and charting their progress forced me to be organized and to stay late every day, but I didn't really mind, except on Tuesday because I had class Tuesday night in a few hours. The only real negative was I somehow ended up with the same (or a very similar) head/chest cold that I had over a month ago. It started to become a real issue last Sunday, so I lived on cold medicine for the whole week and then would come home and sleep for 1-2 hours after work.
The funniest, and most fun!, part of the week was Friday: as a fundraiser for the March of Dimes, the students got to pay a quarter and they would recieve an "egg" that contained one of several things; a free homework pass, or the ability to pie office staff, cafeteria staff, teachers, or administration. As you can imagine it was a huge success; the school raised over $700.00! Well, I ended up sitting on a stool with the other teachers getting pied too, rofl! I wasn't going to, I thought you had to be one of the regular teachers, but after so many of my kids decided they wanted to pie me I went ahead and spoke with the teacher running it and he told me that it was completely on a volunteer basis, and that they would love for me to join. So, I was in. Let's just say I figured it would be a good way to allow my kids to get even with me for being so strict. 😉 And considering how many other classes I've subbed for often, I got pied a lot more than I thought I would. It was a hilarious and fun way to end the week, especially since it's now Spring Break.
Zach has finally finished his medication and seems to be healthy and rid of MRSA, which I'm SO thankful for. Thanks to all of you who have sent prayers, love and light. I'm very grateful and feel uplifted knowing how many of my friends here care. 🙂 <3
It's almost 4 in the morning. I woke up from a bad dream and scrambled out of bed because I thought it was real. It's really sad though, because the reason I got out of bed was because I didn't want to be near my husband due to the fact that my nightmare was regarding him. In the dream I had asked some very hard and painful questions of him and the responses he gave sickened me, because they were so brutally honest. They cut down to the bone. So I decided that I needed to come upstairs to get away from him for awhile without saying things that would really destroy our marriage, especially considering it wasn't a real conversation to begin with. All in my head. SMH.
I'm still doing well on the Ritalin. That's a good sign. No hypomanic behavior as of yet (except for the 2nd day, and it was minor), and that was why I was pulled off of it before.
This is a complete divergence from what I've been talking about, but it's been bugging me for a long time. It has come to the forefront of my mind lately because of my Philosophy class and what we discuss. The big questions of God or no God, spirituality vs. physicality, etc. So here it is I guess in a nutshell; how many of you believe in ghosts, demons, wandering spirits and souls? Mostly I'm concerned with the negative aspects of this side of the world beyond ~ why do some souls seem to stay here and others move on? Why do certain "demonic" beings torment humans, and why? What does it all say about my personal beliefs, because what I've been "taught" does not allow my beliefs about these issues to fit in, so I know it's time to do some growing.
I've seen things, experienced things since I was a young girl, that have always led me to be interested in ghosts per se, beings outside of the human realm that still communicate themselves to certain humans. Are there different types of creatures, or are the all of the same nature and have changeling properties? Are they all "evil" in nature and play on our emotions to use us in some way, or are they different beings that have different purposes? What would those purposes be? Do souls really get stuck here in the afterlife sometimes, and need help to guide them "to the light", so to speak? Is that part of what lightworkers do?
If you're not comfortable leaving your answers in the comment box that's perfectly okay, just message your thoughts to me. I don't know why this is so important to me now, but I feel like it's leading me in a very important direction, maybe what my life is supposed to be dedicated to doing.
But maybe the biggest question I'm asking is whether or not anyone else here has been visited at least once by something not of our realm? I seem to be attractive to quite a few different entities, some of them family that has passed on even. But as I grow older the visits become more frequent and more varied in who they are…
Now that I sound like I'm completely cracked, I'm going to leave it at that. If you don't believe in anything like this, I understand. (Well, let me rephrase that ~ I don't, but I respect your beliefs like you would mine.) I'd love (seriously!) to hear what and why you feel that way though. All I ask is that you all respect one another's opinions/beliefs and be gentle about your responses.
Love to you all, and may tomorrow be filled with the light of love and hope and happiness.
