Weekly Message # 6 – 15

The frost was so thick this morning – the plants and spider webs were transformed!  Happy New Year everyone – I hope that your break from work was everything you hoped it would be.  Can’t believe it’s time to jump back in to second term.  I am grateful, as the new year begins, to work with such a great group of people!  We welcome Tim Oftebro, our new Resource teacher, and Lily Li, new SSA (replacing Michelle Neidig who has returned to full time work at Van Horne).

Our holiday was full, as usual.  Dad is still in the hospital so we tried to visit him morning and evening each day.  We enjoyed a wonderful family dinner in Chilliwack with my sisters and their families.  We spent New Year’s Eve with our “old” friends and didn’t arrive home until 5:00 a.m.!  Didn’t get nearly enough chores done (probably a good thing) and enjoyed lots of much needed sleep.

Two gratitude quotes to start your new year:

“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” William Arthur Ward

“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.” G.K. Chesterton
