Approaching life with gratitude can be a daily way of being. Our society tends to relegate it to a certain season of the year, but I would contend it should be a part of our everyday. Adopting this outlook has helped me see that I have much for which I am grateful.
I love what I do. I am challenged in it, and I am so aware of the many partners I have in my endeavors to move our school forward each day. Parents, teachers, staff persons, trustees, grandparents, students, and friends all help me, help this school, be what it is. For that I am deeply grateful. I have colleagues upon whom I can count to give me their best efforts and ideas, and they will even tell me when they see something that is perhaps needing attention or redirection. I need people like this. We all do. We need our cheerleaders, and we need those who help us focus on what the “best” is.
I can only say it again. I am deeply, humbly grateful for each one of you. If you receive this weekly email, you are an integral part of James River Day School. What you believe, do, and say matter. I appreciate your efforts to advocate for our school and to represent our school in the community.
I wish you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving.
