It’s almost been a month since I’ve posted anything on this awesome blog. That is crazy!
It’s just another example of how time slips by! The last almost month has been full of so many things I can reflect upon.
The close of the school year always has me thinking about the great positives that this year brought. I know some negative things happened, but as usual, I choose to focus on the positives. I understand the negatives help us learn too, but the positives are the things we want to repeat or build on the most.
Well, first we made it to today! DUHHHHH! Some people never ever never look at it like that, but really, think about it. YOU MADE IT! Yay!
Successes: There were so many at OCHS! We had teams win district, go to playoffs and succeed like never before. We had our academics soar like eagles, art works bring medals home, ag kids go to state and smiles on faces that some thought would never appear! We had teachers do great things through lessons, extra curricular and life-long learning experiences. We had successful pep-rallies, 5ks and one of the best field days we call “COLOR WARS” we’ve ever had. Our principals are amazing. Our teachers are super awesome. Our students…THE REASON we do what we do!
Personally, I’ve felt pride and honor in teaching students, joy in working with co-workers and happiness in living the life of a Clawson.
My own children have grown another year and they don’t cease to amaze me in the things they can do. God blesses me with more POSITIVES than I could have ever imagined!
Looking at memories of the year, of the last decade of just yesterday, I can say I KNOW time does slip by, but I say that in a positive light. I do not mourn for yesterday. I rejoice in the fact that yesterday happened and that today is happening and that tomorrow is gonna bring wonderful new things to add to my TIME here.
While traveling through, this world of sorrow, I’m on my way to Gloryland. I’ll not turn back for some tomorrow, my trails here–I’LL UNDERSTAND.
That is from the I WANT TO KNOW MORE song. I see trials as just what we go through. They may be positive or negative. Either way, we will understand one day why it all happened and until then I will be in constant THANKSGIVING for it all!
Time does slip by! …but oh what a wonderful ride it is!
