Thankful for Life's Little Moments

      The horrific events of this past week are a painful reminder that our lives can change in an instant.  We must always be mindful of those moments in life that bring happiness amidst all the chaos; for so much is out of our control.  

     Being able to appreciate the little things in life is a gift.  Children have a way of living in the moment. Working with my students each day, I am constantly reminded of this.  They know how to find the good in every situation.  We can learn so much from their innocent words.  They give us hope for the future.
