Thoughtful Thursday: Faith & Love- the Two Noses of Life

So, I have been sick for more than a week- some type of crazy sinus junk. Let’s just say it hasn’t been pleasant. I haven’t been able to smell much lately because of it. Honestly, that’s come in handy when the stinky, smelly high school boys walk in my classroom every afternoon, or bring their… Continue reading Thoughtful Thursday: Faith & Love- the Two Noses of Life
