We sure are lucky, aren’t we?
Nodding your head aren’t you, “Sure are.” But are we really? Here’s what I mean… As I reflect on all of the achievements I’ve witnessed my students captured in 2010, I realize the amount of hard work and effort each one dedicated to these achievements. Over and over again, in 2010 I was reminded by watching those I choose to be close with – constantly growing, contributing and loving – constantly! Making their situations in life better, serving the people around them and recognizing the value in all that surrounds them. Those qualities alone shape their lifestyle, their standard of participating in life. There’s no luck involved in any of it. I choose to be around that type of person for a reason.
