Thanksgiving wasn’t always my favorite holiday. Growing up, Christmas was always No. 1. Staying up late to watch Christmas specials on TV because there was no DVR, an endless supply of cookies and fudge, presents — what’s not to love! Fourth of July came in at No. 2 mostly because it’s also my birthday. Halloween and Easter tied for third.

While most people set new goals while ringing in the new year, fall has always been my “New Year’s Day.” It’s almost as if the change in the leaves inspires a change in me. My whole life has been spent in education in one capacity or another, and fall means fresh pink erasers, crisp new folders and a brand new wardrobe. Fall, with its promise of cooler morning temperatures and new school pictures, reinvigorates the side of me that’s been lounging by the pool in the summer heat.
Sometimes not doing something is a really good decision.
Well, friends and neighbors, I hope you are staying cool in this summer heat. Be aware of your surroundings. If you have folks who are ...
