I love being here.
My time here at school is ending. God is preparing me to retire. I feel more and more alienated from everything here at school. I have to learn to hold this, myself, my feelings in lovingkindness before God.
I want less and less stuff. I want more and more of nature and a simpler lifestyle. It is almost if I have a toxic reaction to glamour magazines and glamorous people. I have a craving for ordinary people living ordinary lives and for community.
That I am constantly on a journey.
I have learned that I must consciously go out of my way to connect to students, to meet them where they are, to approach them and to take an interest in their lives.
To comfort my sister who is lonely.
My little granddaughter Madeline is just four years old and the way she handles and flies a kite on Northead is just wonderful. How she makes the kite dive and spin, how she walks up and down to make the kite do tricks is just remarkable. I love that. that inspires me to trust the wind, the wind will lift us we just have to let go!
My toes. I must show my toes my gratefulness.
I am so grateful for the clean water that I have to drink. This inspires me to ask for climate justice for the millions of people all over the world where rivers are polluted, lakes are polluted, wells are polluted. I have to be a voice for the voiceless.
I am letting go the hurt from my family, the neglect, the lack of love, the treatment all of that. I give it to the wind to take away. I am free.
My father his love for God and giving a tenth of everything to God. My mother and her gentleness, tidiness, neatness, and beauty. My husband Stanley and his creativity, his love for life and his great sensitivity.
With my principal. I am grateful for her openness, her honesty and her gentleness.
Greta Thunberg, the sixteen-year-old Swedish girl who is mobilizing climate action.
My faith, my conservation work and my teaching.
Abundance of love.
My classroom is beautiful. It sings of the presence of GOD.
To living with Jesus.
Looking in the eyes and seeing Jesus in every person and in nature.
Living like the little family of Jesus, living in Nazareth a simple working life amidst ordinary people and befriending my neighbors..
It helps me to see the endless goodness of God.
Gratitude that I can see Jesus in the other. Gratitude that I have remembered that. Gratitude that God is control. Gratitude that I see only in part but God sees the whole.
It feels holy and as if I am in the presence of God.
