Tonight was open house at my daughter’s school and I loved it! I wanted to open her teacher’s new box of Expo markers and neatly print “Mrs. Christenson” on the board. You see, I have loved school since … well as long as I can remember and a bachelors degree + a couple of master degrees later… well I obviously still love school. I received a post on my Facebook / Twitter wall this morning that brought a smile to my face. One of my favorite students (a real sweet and smart kiddo who is now a beautiful grown-up and mommy) remembered her awesome insect collection she had created in AP Biology class. Other students (who are now Facebook Friends) chimed in that years later after medical school, law school, and becoming teachers themselves… they too still have or think about creepy crawlies. I swear, senior memories and laughter makes me giddy.
I am humbled by the experience had this past weekend. Approximately a year ago I was asked to be the event photographer for a special weekend, the “Brides Against Breast Cancer Weekend“. I was not sure what it was about, but I knew I wanted to be a part. I mean, really….who doesn’t want to stomp out cancer? I volunteered and it was one of the best experiences. Brides and bridal shops donated fabulous dresses to be sold at prices that were a steal! (We are talking about thousand dollar dresses sold for a couple of hundred…wow!)
Here in South Texas, we are in the middle of our wedding season and calendars are booked out the kazoo, days/hours off are seldom, and us wedding folks live and breathe glitz, glam, and fabulousness. With all this said, it was amazing how many of us “wedding vendors” took time to dedicate to giving back. Everyone organizing the event was a VOLUNTEER. Pablo Vasquez, was the organizer of the entire event and such gratitude is owed. Some of the vendors at the event included the following…. Bisli (gorgeous flower arangements and a warm happy smile), San Antonio Weddings magazine, San Antonio Wedding Guide, Granberry Hills Event Center, and many other vendors whom I would call friends and experts in their field.
There is so much greatness to have and share.. go take a piece of it, it will warm your soul.
Here are some images to share…
Whenever I am feeling a little achy, coughy, germy, or just an unknown yucky, I seek out an appointment with my doctor’s office, but make attempts to see the nurse practitioner. I would rather see her than the actual doctor and I don’t think this is weird. She sits and listens to my moans and groans and sometimes just makes me feel better by telling me that I don’t have ebola, malaria, pregnant with octuplets, or the swine flu (okay I am a bit of a hypochondriac). I love her for making me feel important each time I need someone to doctor up my boo-boo’s and woes.
I sometimes wonder what nurses are made out of. I know it must be something special. I mean come on, to actually give meds, change diapers, wipe snot, deal with death, tolerate screams, dry tears, and have patience with someone you did not birth…geez… Well that is what Misty is…she is compassionate, calm, and seems to take on the world in stride. Misty is already a well sought out nurse but decided to continue her learning and is now a nurse practitioner (she graduated on Sunday). Wow, I think that means that she can even write prescriptions and be my “doctor”, or perhaps even better than Dr. X. Hummm… We all need a “Misty” in the world, someone who makes us feel better when we have a boo-boo.
Lots of fun at the photoshoot, Misty. Thank you for letting me capture some memories for you. Congratulations on your new journey!
