It’s a busy week with kids heading back to school, Jazzercise moving down the street under new ownership, and the scent of fall around the corner. In fact, this morning I actually felt like I was ‘cheating on summer’ by ordering a Pumpkin Spice coffee. Pumpkin Spice in August? It just isn’t right!
So while I’m starting to have thoughts of fall, it was a bit odd to see this snowflake laden postcard in my mail last week. Perhaps today is an auspicious day to share it in my blog as the kids in Newtown (among many other towns in our area) head back to school today.
This was the message on the postcard.
Our wonderful Jazzercise community spent time after class last December making snowflakes for the Sandy Hook community. We did it because we felt helpless. We did it because it gave us a chance to do something, even if such a small gesture. We did it because we had no idea what else to do.
We didn’t do it for thanks.
I’m touched that the Sandy Hook PTA took the time to thank people. It is a beautiful example that we can never be too busy or too overburdened to express gratitude.
Wishing the Sandy Hook children and ALL children returning to school, a safe and happy year!
