Thanksgiving 2013 – What Are You Thankful For?
So we’re counting down to Thanksgiving 2013.
And I ask, what are you thankful for this year?
So much has changed in my world the past few years. There is much to be thankful for, and many things I should like to leave in the past.
But there are some FANTASTIC things that have come about in 2013.
My life has been enriched with new friendships, and rekindled friendships from years ago. Friends from my youth in Atwater, CA have come back into my life thanks to the miracle of Facebook. It’s been so enriching to reconnect with childhood friends who were left behind due to our family moving from CA to Montgomery, AL in 1981.
Derek Kubacki, Rod Jefferson, Danny Kasper were all good friends when I was 12-15. Christi Haas and Kristy Nunes were in class with me on our second time to live in California in 1972 during the end of the our first grade year. I’ve had some great conversations with them this year. That’s enabled so much healing.
John Ed Mathison and his book, “When God Redefines The Possible” had a tremendous impact on me as a person, the Claxton Creative book for iPad business, and the lives of my children.
Then there was the Learning Forward project “Standards for Professional Learning.” A book for iPad we made designed to positively impact educators around the world.
And then I’ve been able to see my daughters, Chandler, Reagan and Haley mature even more into beautiful young women. Leaders, each of them, I’m so very thankful and proud.
There’s so much more to share and talk about, but I want to open this space for you, too.
So tell me about what you’re thankful for this year….
