What's in a name? You would think after taking 9 months to decide on a name for my little guy that I would anticipate taking quite a while to name my blog. But no, I thought, "It's just a blog, I can think of something quick". Well... I was wrong. I should know my indecisive self by now. I wanted something cute, clever, or at least an alliteration! I thought for days, enlisted my husband (who is much more creative than I am... But I don't think he really gave it much effort... Thanks a lot hubs) and still nothing...
The only word that stuck out to me is the word that I try to live by, agradecida (grateful/thankful).
It all started a few days after my grandma had passed away and I was trying to keep my mind busy by surfing good ole Pinterest. A picture of a tattoo of the word "agradecida" came up. I had an immediate connection with it. For days I would think about the word and even thought about getting a tattoo... but like I said, I am very indecisive and a tattoo is WAY too much commitment! I ended up deciding to get the word on a necklace instead. I wear it all the time and it makes me smile to think of my grandma and remember to live every day with a grateful heart.
So I had a one word blog name. Boring. I figured I would stick with Spanish and La maestra came to be. And just like that La maestra agradecida was born. The grateful teacher, sounds good enough to me. Working in a school with the kindest, most caring staff and adorable, funny kids is plenty to be thankful for.
