Reflections – Monday, September 19, 2016

Carol A. Hand

Gazing up at surrounding trees
silhouetted against cloudy sky
watching as four eagles circle above
grateful for the sheltering and life-giving presence

Returning to the tasks before me
Grading and building new course assignments
deeply grateful for the honor of trusting students
eager to learn so they can build a healthier world

May their thoughts soar with the eagles
carrying the message of our shared dreams
for the sake of all, and for generations yet to come
of healthy communities nurturing children in a world at peace

About Carol A. Hand

What matters are not the titles I’ve held or university degrees I earned or the size of a house or bank account. It’s really what I’ve learned from ordinary people like me whom I’ve met along the way. They taught me to live with gratitude and give thanks for each new day.
