Goals and Dreams

Sunday, May 20, 2012

The tragedy of life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach. It isn't a calamity to die with dreams unfulfilled, but it is a calamity not to dream." -Benjamin Elijah Mays

    I think that's one of the things about Spark People, it encourages all of us to set a goal and try to reach it!
Hope you are having a great weekend! emoticon

Bittersweet day...

Friday, May 18, 2012

Today is graduation practice for our seniors, which is always a time of great excitement for them, as they prepare for their big day. It's also a bittersweet time for me, as I watch these young people prepare for the next step in their futures. I am blessed and privileged to have the opportunity to work with most of these students from the time they are elementary age and up through their high school years, the growth and maturity I see in them is sometimes overwhelming! I've been doing this for twenty-three years and yet I still swell with pride and true tears as I watch them walk across that stage and flip those tassels... they are my babies and our future...

    Your profession is rewarding for you and for your students. I know they'll miss you as you miss them. Enjoy the ceremony! emoticon

Hugs!

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

It's the perfect gift. A Hug! ...It's not too big and it's not too small, one size fits all and no one complains if you return it. A Hug...Give one today.

I'm a hugger so this quote is absolutely perfect for me... I believe we can all benefit from both giving and receiving hugs...have you had your hug today?
