A Teacher Schooled

I can’t stop thinking about what Christopher said. He’s a 1st grader who was in one of my etiquette classes. He was sitting having lunch with another teacher and I when I mentioned how lucky I was about… gosh I can’t even remember.

He interrupts me and says, “In my family, we don’t say we are lucky, we say we are blessed.”

Wow.

What a wonderful way to look at life!
