Gratitude: Don't Leave Home Without It
Hello My Teacher Friends,
For those of you who, like me, live in Florida, I hope you and your families are safe. My prayers are with you.
This last week has been a long one for those of us in Florida. One of the many takeaways I have from the week is gratitude.
While Hurricane Irma caused much loss, heartache and fear, our odyssey has put life in perspective (once again). I remember to be grateful for what I have. Funny how that works. What really matters are the people in my life. The rest is just frosting on the cake.
I am grateful for:
- family- so precious
- wonderful friends who care so much for us
- amazing teachers to work with
- neighbors who look after each other
- strangers that have jumped in to help in a crisis
- a governor and other officials that put people's lives ahead of any agenda (crazy right?)
- and so much more
I have nothing (emotionally) left after our flight out of harm's way and a return to pick up the pieces of our life and continue on our journey. Tomorrow I will start putting things back together. For now, I am just grateful.
If you are a teacher and want to help a teacher effected by either Hurricane Harvey or Hurricane Irma, please contact me. Also, if you are a Florida or Texas teacher and need help replacing items that were lost or destroyed in the hurricane, please let me know. There are many teachers that would love to help you.
I will do my best to connect teachers with teachers. #teachershelpingteachers
