If we could bottle optimism, we could be millionaires! When corresponding with Merrick McGraw, recent college grad filling a temporary position at Harrison High School, I was reminded of the kind of positivity I would choose for that bottle. Merrick wrote, "I have no doubt that starting here will lead to something great!" This young man sees his temporary position not as a filler but a launching pad.
Wow! I'm ready to embrace that view, converting my "not quite" to "almost."
