It is a dreary December 23rd. outside, but my classroom will soon be filled with laughter, music, dancing, and joy.
I’m taking just a moment to survey the scene – desks pushed against the wall to give us space to dance, desks piled with treats (shh…don’t tell anyone, but yes, we are definitely having treats!), and comfy chairs all arrayed so that we can crash when the dancing gets too much. In a few minutes, my kids will be here, and I can’t wait to see their smiling faces, their holiday excitement.
We’re putting work aside to enjoy the blessings of each other’s company, the gift of being lucky enough to have much to celebrate, and the freedom to do so.
It is the season of lights, the promise of hope, and we rejoice.
