Fall is Grand!!! Today was a wonderfully windy day full of beauty and I just happened to snap a picture or two. Sharing one above. 🙂 God sure knows how to create some awesome pictures! It’s insane how some people think all this beauty is some kind of coincidence. What!? Thank GOD for this beauty!
We also had our family photos done today by a former student (and family friend) of mine. It was so great to talk with her and catch up and know that the pics she took are going to be great. She also made me feel like a great teacher–that is such a blessing, because we all know that, at times, we question ourselves. We doubt the impact or influence we have on those around us. It’s so nice when God allows others to give us a boost of confidence.
I so appreciate her words today that made me feel so good—I want to seek out those who have helped teach me anything important along the way or made me strive to keep on keepin’ on. I’ve tried in the last few years to really do that–to show others what they have done for me. I have blogged in the past about my mentors and that is who I’m talking about now. There have been so many in my life that wouldn’t even consider themselves “mentors,” but there is no doubt they had a major influence on me. I think it’s so important to recognize these people and let them know they helped you in some way or made you feel great about yourself or just gave you a great example through some situation they were in. I can think of so many who fit one or more of these things. I think I will go right now and let some of them know that I thought of them today.
FALL IS GRAND!
