A TIME FOR REKINDLING

Laura Sandefer

November 16, 2012

“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.” Albert Schweitzer

We entered the yurt this week to sip apple cider and talk about the meaning of gratitude and how cultures throughout history have given thanks for their harvests, health, safety and family.

We asked ourselves: Is gratitude an emotion or an action? Are you born with it or can you create it? If your parents make you say, “thank you,” is that gratitude? Why are thank you notes valued so highly? Is gratitude contagious? Why is it considered the key to a happy life? We could have stayed all day.

I left our yurt wanting more time with the students. They rekindle my spark.

I am deeply grateful to each parent for sharing your treasure – your child – with us each day. My fire of gratitude burns bright. Happy Thanksgiving.
