There are blessings around us each day at LaRue Miller Elementary! I enJOYed a very special lunch today with some extraordinary cooks. We feasted on roasted turkey, cornbread dressing, gravy, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, rolls with real butter (a personal favorite), and a plethora of pies! As is the tradition, these friends annually prepare a Thanksgiving lunch for several of the adults in our building as a way to say thanks for our time and service with them each day. The real blessing, though, are the many ways these wonderful friends bless my life each day!
Mrs. Wimpee, Mrs. Bush, and I are pictured here with Connor, Ashley, Kade, and Dawson who explained in great detail how much work a meal like this actually takes. 🙂 They even decorated the tables and shared their fancy artwork with us during the meal. When I told one friend I wanted to stay for rest time, she politely informed me I needed to “get back to work because you’re the principal; principals don’t rest!” 🙂
As you gather together in the coming week with family or friends, it’s my sincere hope you take time to model to your child and reflect together on the many abundant blessings in your lives. As I told learners this morning during our morning message, we must all remember to have “attitudes of gratitude,” not just on Thanksgiving, but throughout each day of the year . . . .
