Teacher's Pet Cactus (in a jar)

May 11, 2018

 

In this life, God gives us many teachers. He gives us parents, the first ones to teach us about life and set us on our way. There are friends, siblings, cousins, children. And, then, there are our educators. The ones who shape us. The ones who, although not in any way blood related or destined to be friends with, cares and shares with us what they know in order to move us forward.

 

 

This week, we celebrate teachers everywhere for Teacher Appreciation Week. Year after year, I think of all the teachers and professors that helped make me who I am. I have lost many. To cancer. To Alzheimer's. To life because it absolutely always ends in death. Let us celebrate their lives, for what they were, what they are and what they will be.

 

 

For all those who can still remind those "teachers" around us that we care, love and appreciate them, I have come up with this sweet little DIY tutorial. Who doesn't love a Teacher's Pet Cactus (in a jar)? It is the cutest, the tiniest and least needy of all the cacti family.
