Thank You
Thank You: (a book for teachers) | Sandy Gingras
102 posts | 3 to read
As artist and writer Sandy Gingras so aptly points out in the introduction to her book Thank You, a life lived well is perhaps the highest form of thanks a person can give to teachers as a way of repaying them for their attention and effort. A simple thank-you is also nice. Thank You is Gingras's own delightful way of conveying this sentiment. This charming keepsake book features her soft, sweet watercolor artwork and thoughtful original text celebrating teachers and all they do for us. Always striking the right tone of gratitude without being overly sentimental, Thank You is a wonderful way to show appreciation to teachers for their enduring gifts to us both great and small.

@BeckyB thank you and your precious T. for making my little girl's day. Those tabs are adorable and she wanted to share with every family member. I'm ashamed to say I coveted them and was happy she offered some to me. LOL! Thank you. #bookmarkswap @LibrarianRyan

@Cwarnier you have outdone yourself!! I can't wait to read the books. The question book would be great for weekly games. The poems, coloring pages, and bible verses were awesome; those verses were just the right ones I needed to hear. The bookmark craft slippers were cute. My daughter already claimed ownership for the grateful journal and stickers. Everything shows how thoughtful you are. Thank you 😘❤😘❤

Callemarie @BethM I feel like in general I have a manageable daily anxiety but I was drinking an energy drink a day and I read that excessive caffeine can make anxiety even worse and I would go to work and just have this mini anxiety attacks in my cubicle and just wasnt productive at work, at least to my standard. I didnt know what was going on. I cut caffeine completely from my diet which has been rough but I'm def feeling better 4mo

@TheLudicReader Thank you SO much, Christie, for this stunning print. It‘s even more beautiful in person. I love it and plan to frame it and hang in my library (when we move to our house in Dec). The bookmark is too cute- it‘s in my book. And I hope people can see the amazing calligraphy by your daughter.
Again, thank you so much. 😘

TheLudicReader Super happy it arrived in one piece. After I sent it, I realized I hadn‘t put my return address on it...and then thought, “Geesh, what if it can‘t be delivered?” But, yay. 5mo

Hey everybody!! Thank you for all the awesome book recommendations on my post the other day!!! You are all awesome!!! I am on the waitlist at my library for some of them now. And in strange twist I found out one of the movies I have been obsessed with is based on a book.....it should arrive at my house next week!!!

I just wanted to say how grateful I am to all of you for your recommendations and being so sweet to me!!!

bullbunny Oh what book n movie???? 6mo
AsYouWish @bullbunny The movie is called Who's Stalking Me? and the book is called The Purple Rose 6mo
bullbunny Interesting I will look into it 6mo
AsYouWish @bullbunny the movie is on Lifetime. I think it is on again sometime this week. I think it is really good!! I am hoping the book is just as good. 6mo
AsYouWish @bullbunny Wait... I mixed up my movies the title is actually I'll Be Watching, but you should totally check out both. 6mo

Hi guys! I can‘t reply to everyone, but thanks SO MUCH for all the well wishes. Doing ok, and reading a LOT. I‘m pretty bad at relaxing... I like always doing stuff (Enneagram 1 and ENTJ), so a little forced recuperation is probably good for me. 🤪🤪

Stay tuned for a bunch of reviews! #friyayintro #howjessreadsin2019

It was just a happy coincidence ❤️❤️❤️ sometimes I send bigger envelopes because of the sticker folding but I didn‘t have time to actually go to the post office to find out postage so I just put 2 stamps on each one, lol. Glad you love them!! ❤️❤️ 7mo

Thank you so much for the beautiful card , a picture of Frida Kahlo , which I‘d never heard of , so I looked her up. She had quite a life story, and sadly, too short.
Thank you also for the Spirit Stone. For those unable to see the etched design, it‘s got a dragonfly, which says : live life to the fullest , growth, change, maturity.
Thanks so much. I‘ll respond to your letter soon. ♥️. #jb

Carolyn11215 @kaye I‘m so glad it arrived and that I could introduce you to the amazing Frida Kahlo. She was both an amazing artist and an amazing woman who lived with the most excruciating pain for all of her adult life. She‘s an inspiration to many and very beloved in Santa Fe. 7mo
Kaye Yes, she had an Interesting life story. Has there been a book written about her ? @Carolyn11215 7mo

Carolyn11215 @kaye, yes, I know there was a biography about her and her husband Diego Rivera that I read. Let me do a search. If you ever have the chance to see her paintings in person, I highly recommend it! I saw an exhibit at a small gallery in New York. Very powerful paintings. 7mo
DivineDiana @Carolyn11215 Currently a major Frida exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum! https://www.brooklynmuseum.org/exhibitions/frida_kahlo 7mo
Carolyn11215 @DivineDiana I lived in Brooklyn for 30 years. Just relocated to Santa Fe. The Brooklyn Museum is amazing!!!! 7mo
DivineDiana @Carolyn11215 I went to Pratt, so lived there a bit myself! Santa Fe is a different kind of fantastic! Hope you are enjoying your new home! 7mo

JoScho @Carolyn11215 this Frida card is amazing! 7mo
JoScho Frida was a total badass! 7mo
Carolyn11215 @JoScho one of my fave local Santa Fe artists, Victoria De Almeida, does these amazing paintings of Frida, which she also makes into greeting cards, tiles and bookmarks etc. I just emailed her because she wasn‘t in her gallery and I need some cards! 7mo
JoScho @Carolyn11215 love it! Just checked out her Etsy. She has some great art! 7mo

@peaknit I received your card today. Thank you so much for reaching out to me. I think we would make great neighbors as well. Losing my husband has been, and still is, the hardest thing I have ever faced. I am having trouble with basically everything. Having people reach out has been such great comfort, so thank you so much.

mcipher I didn‘t see your post in December, so sending late but heartfelt hugs and condolences. I‘m sure you are not “okay”, but I hope you are having little okay moments. ❤️❤️ 7mo

Kaye I‘ll trust your judgment , Amy, as we have some favorites in common. 😁♥️. @AmyG 8mo
AmyG We do. Let me know what you think. I am about 2/3 of the way through. 8mo
Kaye @AmyG Have you read the others in the series ? It‘s a bit confusing, as there are others, I guess, with the same character, that come before this, but I think this is called a trilogy and this is the first book. I know Misty really likes him too. @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks 8mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @kaye it‘s great!! This is the first in a series!! 8mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @kaye I didn‘t see this before I responded! The second book is The Bone Tree and the third is Mississippi Blood. There are other books with Penn Cage, but these are the ones in the trilogy ❤️📚 8mo
Kaye Thanks for the info, Misty. Have you read them all ? @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks (edited) 8mo
