Each day, my class and I start with morning meeting. We share compliments and goals, discuss hot topics, and build community. Yesterday's topic was "think about a way you can help someone at your house?" They think first and share second. Then they share their idea in a complete sentence. Friends may respond, they may not, but we all listen. Their responses were great and almost all of them were sincere, caring answers....almost.
I was driving home thinking about their responses and asking myself how I can help someone at my house. How can help N? How can help T? How can I help my mom who is over 300 miles away?
I know it sounds silly, but it really hit me. I think we sometimes get bogged down in life-work, play, home, etc and forget about the people closest to us. I know I do.
So that's what I'm thinking about right now. How can I help the ones I love? What little things can I do to help the people who mean the most to me?
What are you thinking about right now?
