“When it comes to life, the critical thing is whether you take things for granted or take them with gratitude.” – Gilbert K. Chesterton
Every year before Thanksgiving vacation, Dean of Students Mary Lorick Thompson puts up several sheets of paper next to her office door, and she encourages students to jot down things for which they are thankful. Inevitably, the sheets fill up!
Here are just a few of the items I enjoyed reading this year:
There are many more “jottings;” in fact, there are three pages worth! I’ll share one more and this one’s from me: I’m thankful for Academy parents and for their amazing daughters, who have embraced our Salem community for so many wonderful years. Academy students and their loved ones have blessed us mightily by allowing us to be part of their families. So, thank you, and I pray that you and your family have a safe, relaxing, and peaceful holiday.
