As I sit and stare at our tree today, I can't help but think of so many things--how lucky I am...how my boys are both safe...how we have so very many "things"...how it was actually tricky to select ornaments this year.
It got me thinking...what ornament would I pick for myself to symbolize this year? A little computer to represent my new blogging venture? A camera as I continue to work to refine my skills in that area? A 3-ring binder to reflect all my "Common Core" documents? A dove to symbolize the peace that I hope for in our schools and world? It's hard to say...
I do know that it is important to reflect not just at the close of the year but all the time...to focus on how lucky we are are and how much we have. I need to be better about appreciating all the good in my life--even when things seem beyond challenging. As we move through the holidays, I wish all of you happiness, joy, and peace...may you reflect upon how lucky we are. I'd love to hear...what ornament would best represent your year? Let's see how creative you all are! Let's see if we can get a bunch of people to post their ideas--let's inspire each other!
|As technology connects those of us across the world, let's hope for peace, joy, and love for us. Happy Holidays to all of you.|
