A sea of faces surrounds me. All dressed in blue uniforms. It's a crowd of amazing children who are students at our school. Each one is unique. I scan the crowd as I prepare to take photos. I am greeted by waves and smiles and "Hi Miss Debbie". I recognize faces of children who were in our Pre-K 3 Class several years ago. They may have grown but I still see the sweet face of a precious child.
I wonder how they will choose to distinguish themselves from the crowd as they grow and get older. Momentarily, I consider the choices I've made in my life to get to this place.
Life happens. Some things we can control. Other things are outside of our control. I still believe that it's our response to the circumstances in our lives that makes the difference. One person will be defeated and devastated by loss and failure. Another will be energized and motivated to continue to pursue their dreams.
What choices have you made? What do you hope to teach your children? Will you stand out from the crowd and choose to make a difference in someone else's life?
I do believe even the small things make a difference.
Blessings and love,
