We're celebrating puppies!
I am so blessed to be able to spend my professional life doing what means the most to me. One of my favorite elements of my professional life is the opportunity to coach in local schools supporting teachers that work with autistic kids.
Yes, it’s considered work, but brings me great joy!
This past week I was scheduled to go to a school where they were celebrating the 100th day of school. When I was a classroom teacher, this was absolutely one of my favorite days of the year. It was right up there with Dr. Seuss day!
In an elementary classroom, the teacher was reviewing the calendar and daily schedule and talking about the hundredth day of school. She then asked her students, "What are we celebrating today?"
This exclamation came from a quiet little dude sitting towards the back of the room.
Even on a day where I’m wearing my professional "coaches hat", I smiled huge and laughed and thought, this little kid is one of my people.
I was reminded for the rest of that day that it is so important that we celebrate the things in life that mean the most to us.
Could it be the hundredth day of school? Maybe.
Could it be the fact that it’s the weekend and our weather is beautiful? Maybe.
But am I celebrating puppies? Absolutely.
Life gets hectic, and life can feel overwhelming. Take time every day to celebrate and enjoy what matters most to you.
Wishing you a beautiful week ahead, filled with little celebrations.
