Today is my 7th slice for the
March Slice of Life Challenge
Thank you Ruth for this opportunity (and reminder) to
celebrate this blessing called life!
Today I'm writing a slice for the March slice of life challenge AND I'm writing about celebrations for celebrate this week link up!
I celebrate all of my fellow bloggers! It's inspiring to know so many people are writing and blogging alongside me...all over the world! I particularly celebrate the bloggers I've invited to share in this challenge: Jean, Melanie, Meagan, Michelle, Rebeccalee, Lisa, and Kathleen. They are all first time bloggers and I'm loving their blogs! Stop by and comment if you get a chance.
I celebrate reading. I just finished an amazing book called Tattoos on My Heart by Father Gregory Boyle. He writes about his life working with gangs in Los Angeles. I savored the stories in this book! If you want to listen to Fr. Boyle, watch his TED talk here...
He talks about compassion and kinship. Oh, this is a book I'll return to again and again. I celebrate the lessons I learned through this reading.
I celebrate student writing. This week we only had two days of school, because of snow days, but I had the opportunity to read the most brilliant and creative pieces of writing from my sixth graders. Complex fantasy stories. Emotionally powerful poetry. Thought provoking mysteries.
I am in awe of their talent and the bravery it takes to write and to share writing with their writing groups. It's an honor to be their teacher.
I hope your week has been filled with celebrations. I'd love to hear about them!
