“And lovely are the blossoms
That are tended with great care,
By those who work unselfishly
To make the place more fair.
And, like the garden blossoms,
Friendship’s flower grows more sweet
When watched and tended carefully
By those we know and meet.
And, if the seed of friendship
Is planted deep and true
And watched with understanding,
Friendship’s flower will bloom for you. ”

Shelved under Award, Lessons in Life

Desert Diva has been an online friend at the start of my blogging foray. Even if we live across the world from each other, we still managed to connect with each others in a way that is wonderful. I have been with her through her summer sojourns, her pains and happy moments, her happy (and some not-so-happy in between) moments with her dog (I remember when Cali ate those chocolates) and I have so admired her beautiful photos.

Did I say we are both special education teachers? Well, we are.

She and I both have exciting and challenging work that is different from admin jobs in the work force.

Anyway, I was quite surprised when Desert Diva gave me an award and I was touched by her words:


It’s difficult to read and choose five “creative” blogs. Like Killlshandra, I’m going to choose one – even though I could easily recommend several. However, I think I’m going to send this award “across the ocean” to Julie at Teacher Julie. Julie is a special education teacher in the Philippines. (We have this is common since I was a former special education teacher.) Even though she works long hours, she still has time to nurture and support her family, as well as explore her creative side. She blogs about special education topics, her life, and photography.


Thank you Desert Diva from the bottom of my heart. Thank you.
