3 on Thursday

After reading Carole’s post this morning, I knew I needed to make my own gratitude list before leaving the house. Yesterday saw the closing of most schools in our area. My heart is heavy for the children and families who will have their lives disrupted for an undetermined amount of time. I am also pondering ideas for keeping my teachers and their assistants working and earning money while we do not have children on site. This is a space in our lives that will probably take years to unravel.

But this morning I am grateful for:

A beautiful knitting project that has just enough pattern to keep my scattered brain engaged;

That first cup of coffee – and the plentiful supply of coffee in the cupboard;

Colleagues that I trust and admire. I am blessed and honored to be a part of the leadership team at our school. I believe we have taken each day as it has come and have worked diligently to keep our students and their education at the core of our conversations and decisions.

Now I am off to do more learning with my teachers and stretch my brain cells a bit.
