PTSC Update: Thankful

I so wish that I would write these types of posts not during the week of Thanksgiving.  But, here I am again reminded, as I so often am, just how many things I have for which to be thankful.  This year I’m working not just to show gratitude, but also consider my impact on those around me.

Have you stopped recently to consider this?  When you look at the impact you make on the world around you and on the people in your sphere of influence–is the result a net positive?

Perhaps what I will do this week, in addition to being reminded of how blessed I am, is to resolve to make it a net positive for this upcoming year.  By my words and my actions it will be easy to determine that my influence is a positive one.  That has to not just be when it is easy, but when it is hard to find the positive.

Why is this important?  First, I have to imagine if we all worked on this our society would be a better place.  Second, I have to consider what my words and actions are demonstrating for my boys.  Finally, I want to be a positive leader even in the midst of challenges and struggles.

Have a terrific Thanksgiving–and may you, too, find the many reasons you have for which to be thankful!

PTSC Standouts:

An amazing celebration of our Veterans happened at Boone Grove Middle School and Boone Grove Elementary School through their annual programs.  At Boone Grove Middle School, I had the privilege of listening to Molly Novak, special education teacher at BGMS, talk about her service to our country.  Thank you for your service!img_5848img_5849
