Back to School

Remember when you were a kid and you couldn't wait until that last day of school? Remember all the things that you "got into" in that summer vacation?
Well, then I am sure you remember the butterflies that ran around in your stomach as that 1st day back to school became a reality.

Our kids, our future, are more stressed out than ever before. You probably have had to sit through at least one family story of "when I was your age" we didn't have a bus to ride, we had to walk miles to the nearest school house. We didn't have a hot lunch, we had to share a thermos of soup the teacher brought in. We didn't get new clothes to wear and we were just fine...all trying to point out that things have changed over time. Things are not what they used to be.

Things have changed, we have progressed, we have overcome much of what our ancestors had to endure. We live a pretty cushy life compared to them. But has this cushy life had drawbacks? What will we be telling our grandkids about the good old days? Well for me, it's telling my daughters, "I can't imagine trying to raise kids in this tech age. We didn't have cell phones, laptops or constant phone conversations with our friends and relatives and never with strangers on social media. We didn't have the stress that you have today. As women, we had the choice of working or not working away from home. "

As your kids or the kids you see out the window of your home or car are crossing the road, getting on a bus, congregating on the street corner, say a little prayer for them. Their world is much different. How they will evolve will depend on everyone that influences them.

Then if you are a teacher, a mom, a dad, a grandparent, aunt, uncle, big brother, volunteer, aide, principal, all school staff....realize that you have a big responsibility in growing, shaping and influencing each child within your reach. Take it seriously. Bring your "A" game every day. Remember how difficult it was to be a kid. Growing up is not easy. Be patient, kind, thoughtful, understanding, willing to listen, observant, serve with heart and stay well yourself so that you can be the best you, that you can be.

Blessings Always,
