Today actually was pretty perfect. I had the most amazing birthday weekend that I can remember. Mostly simple, which is totally me. D did the most perfect job surprising me with a trip to the beach and some awesome gifts. I came back super happy and relaxed.
Easing back into the work week and Mondays are never fun. But I did start my day off with this simple, yet encouraging email...
You may have to enlarge it to really see. That was a weekly update I sent to treatment professionals, parents, etc. Then my principal's response. I've been rambling off tons of reasons to D why I love this job so much more. This email is just another to confirm. I feel really lucky to have landed this opportunity. I talked a lot about my lack of reassurance at my other school. While I shouldn't rely on that reassurance from others, it sure as hell feels wonderful knowing that others see the hard work I am putting in to this. I'm definitely still loving this position.
