What In The World Would We Do?

The first day of school.  Again.

I still love to see my tribe off on their first day.

It goes back to the days when my Palmer-3  started their new school year in the beginning of September.  The process was a bit crazy no matter how hard I tried to be organized.  But.  We had fun getting ready, including the hunt to find perfect (cheap) pencils, notebooks, backpacks, and first day clothes.  The anticipation of a great new school year created reason for many spontaneous celebrations.

Turns out I’ve always loved beginnings.

But.  My perspective has changed.

My middle began her first day, yesterday.  She once again is getting ready for a classroom of kids to begin their new school year.   It requires dedicated work.  Tons of work.  I know she enjoys it and anticipates the coming year with her students . . . BUT . . . it requires time and effort, which often is missed by many of us.

So.  Three things:

First of all–it’s crucial to thank all those who work so hard to educate kids and adults.

Thank  you teachers and all those in education.

What in the world would we do without you?

Thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you.  

First day of school. August 15, 2017.

And, second of all, no matter what’s going on . . . it’s important to remember there’s more to the story . . .  a bigger picture to be seen.
Perspective is key.

Lastly, I’m reminded that it takes time to gain perspective–so, I encourage you to take your time to see what needs to be seen–Kerrie

I will be joining a crew talking about the bigger picture of the solar eclipse and so much more on August 20 at 10:30 am.  Because . . . RED DOOR CHURCH (RDC) is meeting online rather than on campus for this one day . . . RDC ECLIPSED DAY.    Invite your friends to hop on wherever they are at 10:30 am pacific standard time.  

We will be putting more directions on the RDC Facebook page.  The RDC website is being made new; however,  you can go there to find your way to RDC Facebook page:  rdcsalem.com.  

And . . . please let us know you are with us on RDC ECLIPSED DAY—it’s so much more fun to know we’re together.
