Today my heart is filled with sadness. A beloved teacher has passed. Mrs. Martha Claire Fitzner was one of the most inspirational teachers I have ever had. The things she taught me have stuck with me throughout my school days. She was my first grade teacher and I loved her so much. I still have my journal from the first grade that she had us keep. If you are friends with anyone on facebook you have seen the post about her impact. Her frog themed room and daily brushing of her hair were things I will NEVER forget. I know she touched not only my life but the lives of so many other students. Keeping her family, friends, and her past and present students in my prayers. I ask that you do the same. There has been a sad vibe throughout the school today. But God has her up there and he was waiting for her with open arms.
Last night Mrs. Mandy talked to us about thankfulness. How we find it easier to complain but how many days do we get up and say thank you God for giving me another day. I am so thankful for everything Mrs. Fitzner taught me. I am thankful for my family, friends, my health, and so much more. We take days for granted but we never know when our last day is going to be. So everyone tell a loved one you love them today. I love you all.
And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. – Colossians 3:15
