Family and friends have seen changes galore this summer. Some are weathering well, some are feeling weathered. I have a niece that is changing jobs next school year, moving from one campus to another. She is excited about the move, but dreading leaving her beloved work team behind. She received a gift from the campus on her last day of school. She received a copy of Dr. Seuss' "Which Way Will You Go." The book in itself made me reflect and smile, but as she revealed the inside of the back and front covers, she was just beaming. As if it were a treasured high school yearbook, the entire teaching and admin staff had written a brief line of encouragement or fondness and signed it. What a great gift! I can understand why she sadly leaves behind such a warm and creative work team! Not too long ago I ran across a Dr. Seuss quote, which really "fits" me right now....in his magical words...
I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind.
Some come from ahead and some come from behind.
But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see.
Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!
