“Today, I am here to be the best that I can be. To lift up our community, to be the best that we can be. To make each second count. To make new mistakes and learn from them. To support my teammates in our mission to make the world a better place. I am proud of my hard work, but I am humble. I still have a lot of work to do. Above all, I am grateful for those who have made my life better. I am ready to get to work.”
Yesterday, my school welcomed our 5th grade scholars for new student orientation. I’m always excited to meet these students. The beginning of the year, especially at for students attending a new school creates such positive feelings and I love the excitement and anticipation of things to come. The “Back to School” time is one of my favorite times of the year.
We did a small group activity with students to help them understand the meaning of our school pledge. As we worked on the second half of the pledge, my group began to discuss people who have made their life better and I heard a sweet voice say this:
“I’m grateful to God because He has made my life better.”
This simple, reflective testimony made my heart smile. It’s going to be a great year.
Until next time…
Be encouraged! Peace and Blessings!
