Today kicks off a fun week of celebrating! In spite of whatever we may be dealing with, struggling with, praying for, or hoping for, celebrating the little things in life is what gets us through the tough stuff! First, today is Cinco de Mayo! WOOT! I can hear Chipotle calling my name for a celebration dinner!
One year ago today, I listed my very first product on Teacher's Pay Teachers. I still remember how nervous I was as I posted this item for all the world to see and really had no expectations that I would sell anything. Prior to that day, I had been blessed by the many teacher-authors who offered professional and creative educational resources for free and/or at amazingly affordable prices. I had just created an opinion/persuasive writing mini-unit for a teacher at my school, and I wanted to share, to give back. Never, ever, ever in my wildest dreams did I think that this product would be my number one best seller! Never did I think that I would be blessed to meet so many supportive, helpful, and talented bloggers and teacher-authors that I now call friends. Never did I anticipate that one person let alone thousands would actually pay for something I created.
To my customers: Please, please know how much I appreciate you... your sweet feedback is what has kept me going when I felt like saying "forget this- I'm no good at this creating lessons, units, packets, etc." Your purchases have enabled my family to keep our "boat afloat" since the fall when I had to resign from my teaching position. Your comments on my blog and Facebook page have "made my day" with your encouraging words, your fabulous ideas, and your friendship. I could go on and on, but I have rambled entirely too much already!
