Say “Thank You”
Years ago someone told me to keep a “Warm Fuzzies” file folder. I’m so glad I did. On days when I feel like I’m making no progress in this world, I can pull out the folder and read notes and letters-many that I’ve completely forgotten about.
This week is Thanksgiving week. It’s a good time to let people know you are thankful for the part they’ve played in your life. As I read through the notes, some handwritten by former students a very long time ago, I realize the person writing was also likely blessed in the writing of them.
I’ve been fortunate and for that I’m thankful. I have so very much to be thankful for and I am. I hope all of us will express our thankfulness this week and write a note to someone to let them know that you notice and are grateful for their part in your life.
I raised three children as a single mother before I remarried. I have experienced the potholes, pests, and perils of being the single head-of-household. As an educator in regular and special education for twenty years I know a great deal about child development and how to handle kids. I am the founder of SMORE for Women, a nonprofit whose goal is Single Moms, Overjoyed, Rejuvenated, and Empowered. I'm a Certified Professional Coach and my stories have been published in several books and magazines. My book, Living Learning Loving is available on Amazon.
