Truths, Beauties, and Appreciations (SOL16 #27)

I saw this format on a blog that I read and decided to give a try on this Easter Sunday. 

What do you know to be true, beautiful, or appreciate?

-Being kind will take you far in life. It is not always easy, but it is ALWAYS the right thing to do. 
-Family should always be a priority. You need to make every moment count because you never know when those moments will be all you can look back on. 
-Remodeling is hard work. There is way more planning that goes all the decisions in a renovating a space than I care to think about. 

-Spring Break. It is simply a beautiful thing. I intend enjoying every single minute of my time off this week to be ready to come back to school and finish the year strong. 
-Life is beautiful. It may not always be easy, and definitely is not always easily understood, but what is meant to be will be.
-The unconditional love of a dog is pure beauty. Every time I come home after spending hours away, my dog exudes pure joy and love. I'm blessed to have her. 

-My parents. Both of them taught me the importance of hard work and ensured that my brother and I knew how to take care of ourselves. They taught us work ethic, as well as how to treat others the way we would want to be treated. The way we were raised helped to shape us who we are today.
-My in-laws. Many have a strained relationship with their in-laws, but not me. I am so beyond blessed to have married into such an amazing family. I am proud to be a Suomi, and love every minute I spend with them.  
-My co-workers. We laugh, learn, and grow together each day. Without their support, I would not be where I am today.
-My students. They teach me so much every single day. I am lucky to be their teacher and truly hope that they know how much I value the time I spend with them. 

Happy Easter!
