My positive thought for the week came to me while I was standing in the front entryway during my morning duty, greeting the students:
This entire week we are participating in Harvest for the Hungry and students are bringing in boxed and canned foods to donate. This is a big deal in my school's community because they are a Title 1 school, which means that the majority of families in this community receive free and reduced meals and free school supplies.
Yet somehow, despite their own personal financial hardships, the families in this community still find it within their hearts to donate as much as they can to those less fortunate. I saw the giant pile of food waiting to be boxed up and donated and it filled me with gratitude: gratitude for the privileges my family has, and gratitude for the kindness and charity that I witnessed in others today.
Have a great Thursday!
