Here's our little group that went to the big city last week. I can't wait to tell you more about the trip.
As we waited to get on the ferry to Ellis Island (and waited and waited...and waited), a colleague mentioned that she was feeling quite frustrated with our delay, as it significantly cut into our instructional time on the island. It was a definite low point.
"Well, let's say everything we're thankful for," I suggested. So we stood in the line with our students and listed the things for which we were thankful. It worked. We felt much better.
Continuing to give thanks to the Father for His blessings which flow to all:
