I hope you declared Thanksgiving 2017 with your beloved family and friends as a memorable, happy event. Wholey and I sure did. We enjoyed wonderful fellowship and fun with our family in our hometown, Florence, AL.
As you can guess from the picture above, my sister (Rhonda is on the right) and I continued learning from the Master Chef, my mom (Sarah is in the center)! We had a Thanksgiving feast: turkey and dressing with gravy, cranberry sauce, ham, sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes, corn, peas, green beans, deviled eggs, fruit cup, grape salad and yeast rolls. For dessert: chocolate cake, pecan pie, coconut pie, and chocolate pie.
Research validates our need for R-P-R (Rest, Play, Reflection). These important, slow-down times renew our spirit and demand our compliance in acknowledging the meaning of life and its priorities. Time is fleeting and we must treasure each day that we share with loved ones.
At this time, I am reminded of the numerous blessings in my life. I count you, Friend, as one of those blessings! It is an incredible honor to work together for our precious students.
And, while we are on the topic of "thanks-giving," may I give you thanks? Thank YOU for sending us your sweet children each day! We have beautiful, intelligent students in Dade County.
With warmest wishes for blessings and favor to each of you today and always,
