TEP Blog Takeover (Week 9 Day 2)
Sunday March 24, 2019
Today, I got up and went right to Mass at 10:30 with my sister. Usually, I got to 7 PM Mass at Holy Cross with my friends but today was a special day. My cousins just bought a beach house in Newport so my family went to go visit! My sister and I stopped into this church on the way home. Mass on Sunday always helps me to remember have gratitude for the beautiful life I have been given. I’m so lucky I get the opportunity to be a student teacher and go to my dream college, Holy Cross. Every day is a blessing and a gift. My Catholic faith and my teaching vocation go hand in hand.
I only live an hour from Newport so it was a short drive over. It was 55 and sunny out and we even drove with the sunroof open. We spent the afternoon touring the house and spending time together. Since they live right on the the Newport Cliff Walk, we made sure to take a walk there. It is so beautiful!
Then, my Grammie treated us to dinner. It was delicious. It was special to have such a fun day spent with family. I’m so grateful we got to spend the day together. Sometimes it is hard to slow down and take time for what we value in life, but I think that days like these are so important and special! I feel refreshed and ready to take on another week of student teaching.
