You do not teach by teaching- you teach by loving. ~Glennon Melton

I am grateful today for love.

I felt it when I read this post which includes the quote above. That quote literally jumped out at me as I realized that it summarizes my mom’s 47 years of teaching. She loved each and every student she reached. That’s what can’t be replaced in her retirement. Others can teach French but will they love like she has?

I am grateful for my mom and the lifelong friends who are loving her right now. They are the real deal.

And I am thankful for the love in our Lenten workshop at church tonight and was so pleased to think about it and talk about it as a community.
