Wow, it seems like the school year just started and already we are entering the holiday season. As society continues to evolve, the holidays take on a different meaning to so many different people. But the bottom line is, whatever the holidays mean to you, use it as it is meant to be used in your beliefs. It is sad when others try to stir your thoughts or your learning to fit their beliefs, and in the end, who is right.
However you spend your time this holiday season, please be sure to spend some time with family and friends, those who mean the most to you. I believe that time lost is time you can’t get back. Reflect on the things that you are thankful for. There is so much to be thankful for, sometimes we tend to take the little things for granted. If I were to stop and write a list of the things I am thankful for, it would start off very simple with:
1. I am thankful for being able to wake up this morning and have the use of all my limbs.
2. I am thankful for the love of my children and grandchildren, as they are the reasons I do what I do.
3. I am thankful for the opportunities that have been awarded me in my life, because each of them was part of the process that got me to where I am today.
4. I am thankful to be able to see someone smile when I talk to them. Students are my passion. A smile is warm and welcoming.
5. I am thankful to be in a position where I can truly make a difference in the life of others who will one day be a contributor to our growing society
And the list goes on.
The bottom line is; I am thankful for my Lord and Savior and life, because HE has been good to me and I am forever in debt to it.
