Being a Paraprofessional

Tuesday I started a new job.  I studied for a long time to be a teacher but didn't finish in Education.  Instead after 30 + hours of English and a lot of observation at Louisiana Tech and Early Childhood classes to boot I wound up with a degree in General Studies at Southern Arkansas University. I am enrolled in the M.A.T. program at SAU at this very moment.  My new job as a Paraprofessional is going to be one of the most challenging jobs I have ever encountered but saying this it is also going to be the most rewarding....besides the jobs I have cherished in the past which were raising my grandchildren and homeschooling them but..........I do not call this a job......It has been my life's dream fulfilled to do this.....I think God put me here for this exact task.... Now with my new job I will be working with a young man who has Aspergers.  He is a very sweet 13 year old 7th grader.  Today we went a half-day.  I walked him to each of his classes (or I might say He walked me at times).  I sat by him or behind him and helped him with his papers and notes.  Just the few hours I was with him this morning I can already tell that he is going to grow dear to my heart!  I can't wait to see his progress thru-out the school year.....  I believe God opens doors for us......sometimes we are afraid to walk through them....sometimes we just blatantly refuse....But when we do we sometimes miss the Blessing that God has waiting for us....  This is a hard time for me..... I have tried to close this door several times.  I get angry and refuse to listen to others, but yet I know God is in control and if I let Him He will continue to open doors in which I never dreamed could be opened.  He already has..... So here is to the precious family who I miss so terribly, I wish  I could see your faces each day, kiss you all goodnight and hug you so tightly.  My life is changing, for the good, for the best, but yet there is not one part of me that will ever forget how much I love and cherish my children and grandchildren...... You are all on my heart.....You are always in my prayers and the tears that fall each day are for you.......Sometime they are teas of joy, sometimes sadness, but always because I love you so...... Life has a way of coming full circle..........My prayer is that someday we can all be so close that a stone's throw will get our attention and we will always be there for each other...........  As for my little 7th grader.........I am excited..........I hope God gives me what I need to make a difference in his life......  And if it is acceptable I will post his pic...........and his name...........someday if its okay............

My little Lilly growing all alone

How smooth your velvet petal

One day your shining in your glory

Next day your almost gone





I love to see your soft delight

Your sense of dewey love

There is a freshness that dawns for me

In morning's early light

TRIBUTES TO THOSE WHO SERVED IN VIETNAM AND THOSE THAT DIED

VARIOUS PICS FROM VARIOUS PLACES IN MAGNOLIA

When you were my little sister
Sometimes I didn’t like you much
You were a brat, and ratted on me
When I thought I knew it all

Even though you got spanked
It was a fun ride huh?
Golf carts required no license
So why should that Barracuda?

I always wondered if the keys would
Ever be found
I didn’t tell you then cause
Besides being a brat you tattled

But then we grew up and went separate ways
You grew into a lovely young woman
You were still my little sister
But not the brat I once thought you were

We’ve shared many moments together
Stumbled and fell, yet never failed
To be there for each other
Sisters are that way

My prayer for you this special day
Is to see life come full circle
To know your worth is measured
In the kindness you bestow

We share that special bond
Only sisters can attest
To understand, not judge, just love
No matter how we fail

So be happy, enjoy the rain when you
Hoped the sun would shine
Change only if you want to
Sometimes roses bloom in winter.

Happy Birthday

How to treat others.............

Untitled

The leaves are gone and bare branches solicit the heavens The warm days are spent, lingering blades of grass Glisten from the morning frost Seeking absolution from their iniquities. Ensuing eradication wounds the external covering And when they have relented at last The hope of resurrection rests in the seed That was scattered long ago. By Debbie Aycock Williams copyright 2009

CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF THE OLD COUNTRY STUFF




Kathryn how do I describe the overwhelming pride you bring to my heart?
When I think back to that rainy night you were born until this very day that is
Filled with sunshine and happiness, accomplishments and expectations of what tomorrow holds, I remember a precious first grandchild, What excitement ensued.

From the time you pushed the front door open and went head over heals down the steps and we spent half the morning in the emergency room. Of course you were fine and I was a wreck. The hours we spent reading and playing will always be memories I cherish like no others. Memories of birthday parties, a scared little girl going into the operating room, Christmas and Easters at Granddaddy ‘s and Mama Kitten’s, vicious bathtubs, special times of doing nothing but being together. There are memories here: Toys you played with, books you read, notes you wrote and pictures you drew; Saved in a box with your name on it and They are all here in my heart, the same heart that is filled with love and pride for you Kathryn, For all you stand for, the caring, loving, kind woman you have become. You are one of God’s gifts to me. I love you.

SPECIAL THOUGHTS FROM OTHERS

Widget available from writingdramatica
As I walk through my garden I touch the tiny leaves
Of my lonely rose bush

It stands all alone, by itself
No other nearby

The hibiscus grow profuselThey entertain each other with colors of purple and white

And mix together as the wind blows
Back and forth

But my little lonely rose bush
Has no other to share its quiet beauty

Only the bees occasionally fly by
And my fingertips when I feel the velvet petal

Someday soon, I shall plant another rosebush
So my lonely rose won't stand alone

And when I no longer walk through the garden
My little rose won't miss my loving touch.
