“The highest form of wisdom is kindness…”  The Talmud

As we get ready to close out 2013 and prepare to embark on the educational adventures of 2014 as a learning community, the simple reminder to be kind on our personal quest for educational greatness and excellence resonates soundly.  There are so many profound daily gifts in this life we are given, especially when you move within the walls of an elementary campus each day!  question-mark2It starts with being grateful. What are you grateful for each day?  How do you show kindness each day?  When you are grateful for the gifts in your life, big and small, you always seem to find more things to be grateful about, thus abundance continues to flow into our life when gratitude flows out of our heart.

We are challenging ourselves at LME to find ways in 2014 to be grateful and kind along our personal and educational journeys.  Our classroom leaders are challenging our families to find more ways to model this example in action to each child on the educational journey each day; it takes all of us.  Be optimistic and excited about the new gifts coming our way and allow kindness (to you and yours to others) be one way to show peace, JOY, and love in action…Be wise; be kind!

In closing, the powerful words of John Wesley sum it up best:

Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as you can…

…So what will 2014 bring?  Blessings and best wishes for a most prosperous, kind, grateful, extraordinary 2014, LME!  Happy New Year!  🙂

Note:  We look forward to everyone returning on Tuesday, January 7th!
