Thoughts for a monday morning

There are moments when you must stop your perpertual moving and reaching for the American Dream and let sadness soak in. To deny yourself this solitude however long it takes is not healthy by any means, and it deserves a wintry season of contemplation.

Today I am reminded of all the students in my elementary classrooms throughout the years that have passed away. Measured in years, their lives were way too short. In quality and contribution to the betterment of others, each one made an immense impact.

One by one, I will picture a face and a name in my mind. A light will shine in my heart for each of them, and I will be glad that I was privileged to share a year of earthly time.
