I was lucky enough to have a classroom beside Beth Healy for the few years I taught at Ligon and have so many good memories of her kind and friendly spirit.
One memory stands out to me today - I would wander into Beth’s classroom 2, 3, 10 times a day- probably on my way to @pamelamarkowski classroom. Beth’s room was was like her- calm & inviting- I always ended up looking at all the awesome photographs she had displayed of these amazing places around the world that she taught her students about. 🌍
I was printing/wondering/looking around... just having a blah day. As always, she had a great intuition & came over to me & said “which one is that?” I remember the photo I was looking at — the sun setting over the African plains. And I looked at her and said, “Your pictures make me want to travel! I want to go on an African safari!” 😊
And Beth, instead of looking at me like was crazy & random, told me “go girl! Just do it! Save up a little each month for a Travel Fund and go! It’s so worth it - I mean at the end are you gonna be like ‘dang, that African safari was the BEST!’ Or be like “dang, I wish I had taken that safari trip i talked about that one time.” We laughed & went back to teaching. But her honest & genuine advice stays with me, as I’m sure it does with her many students who loved her. AND when I DO go on that safari or face my fears, or do something adventurous- I’ll be thinking of Beth Healy, her lovely spirit, her infectious laugh, her wise advice— just a few things the world will miss with the loss of an amazing, wonderful, kind woman & mother gone too soon. ❤️#cherisheachmoment #beadventurous #travel #liveyourlife #begrateful #gonetoosoon #rip #noregrets #bebrave #honest #kind #strongwoman #cancersucks #remember #thegoodtimes #life #teaching #teachersofig #noexcuses #justdoit #wanderlust #lifeofadventure

This #RedSnapper tho! Omg. I’m in love with mowing! It’s so relaxing and meditative — like you have time to think of things you’re brain is too busy to think of during the day.
Like today, I was thinking 3 weeks ago I was push-mowing this huge yard, then we had no mower and the lawn was a jungle to now — when I can ride my brand new Snapper Mower, that I purchased MYSELF and have a wonderful friend making me a red sunshade to match my red mower!
And it has headlights so I can mow at night when the sun’s not out — #lupusproblems #lupuswarrior #lupus like a vampire mower (maybe I’ll buy a headlamp hat, like miners have)! #futurepurchase #nofighting #amazing — the winds of fortune do change fast and In the end you will get what you give in life. #lifelessons #adulting #karma #snapper #mowingthelawn

Finley is prepared (thunder-shirt aka best invention ever!) but still slightly worried for a car ride and an impending rainstorm. #poodlelove #crazydog #finley #doglife #dogsofinstagram #thundershirt #cuteness #roadtrip #dogsthatdrive #worriedpup

Just mowing the grass this fine spring evening— with my newly purchased #craftsman #pushmower from the new #acehardware in town. -

Would I rather have a man to do it? Actually, no! Would I really really rather have a 48 in. Hydrostatic Gas Front-Engine John Deere Riding lawn tractor with cruise control, cup holder, and yellow ergonomic seat? Yes! -

Is it weird that I even think about wanting these various pieces of lawn equipment ALL the time? Probably! -

But I will say that every day my body decides to cooperate and do what I want it to do is a blessing. And today my sick lupus body decided it was feeling good enough to mow our 1.8 acre yard with a pushmower. #lupus #resourceful #independentwoman #lupusflare #lupuswarrior #lupussucks #sunhat #sunscreen

Had a fun AND productive day today... I had a fun car ride with GMA, painted a chicken with a friend, learned how to use a push mower for the first time, and then mowed the front yard— all my myself. #proud #girlpower #funday #friends #mama #cartrip #sunnyday #speingtime #mowingthelawn #pushmower #takesforever #independentwoman #takingcareofshit #resourceful #frontlawn #lupus

Rocking my new shoulder pad seatbelt attachment, which I find to be not only comfortable but SUPER attractive. lol. Now I just have to tint my windows so my #lupus skin doesn’t freak out. #sunny #sunglasses #sunshine #lupus #lupuswarrior #lupussucks #lupusawareness #lupusfighter #lupusrash #spring #springtime #reddishhair #textileandtype #riding #sundaydrive #bigglasses #comfortoverstyle #innovative #solutions for #sickpeople #sickpeopleproblems

“You fall, you rise, you make mistakes, you survive, you learn. You’ve been hurt, but you’re alive. Think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive — to breathe, to think, to enjoy, and to chase the things you love. -

Sometimes there is sadness in our journey, but there is also lots of beauty. We must keep putting one foot in front of the other even when we hurt, for we never know what’s around the bend.” —unknown
