    Rain most often produces results that make us happy: flowers, crops, green growth, rejuvenation of drinking supplies, a free vehicle bath!

Where would we be without the rain and the water?

Happy to serve others

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

One of my greatest joys in life is being able to help others through teaching.
Every time I take time to really teach (not just going through the motions), I learn a lot.
The more I give, the richer I become.
I am happy to serve!
Living a life of both giveing and receiving brings us to summit experiences in life!

    I agree!

One of the best gifts you can receive is the joy in knowing you've given something important and meaningful to someone else.

This should be every teacher's mantra.

Focus on the good and positive

Monday, October 20, 2014

Some days are a struggle.
Some days people are not pleased with our decisions.
Some days we just have to look up. and know that tomorrow will bring good and positive things.

Transitions can be hard, but worth going through!
Focus on the good and the positive!

    Transitions and changes . . . painful @ times, as is the growth that goes along with transitions and change BUT it's more painful to be stuck where you don't want to be. It is always worthwhile, though!

School Daze

Sunday, October 19, 2014

I hope that all my friends are doing well. My commitments at school have kept me from blogging, but I have continued to hike and eat healthy. School responsibilities have increased, but now it is leveling out. Here is a shot from last weekend on Mt. Chocorua.

    School responsibilities mean time for children. A result more worthy than blogging.

So glad you're doing well and making wise choices about what you can eliminate from the daily routine to maintain your life balance.
