Letter of 11/16/2021 Happy Thanksgiving
Hello Yoga Friends, I hope you all have a happy and restful Thanksgiving! Celebrate the abundance of the harvest and the company of family and friends. I feel like there is a lot to be thankful this year. Difficulty does make the good times sweeter.
For me, I am thankful for so many things especially the good health of my family and friends. We have survived this pandemic fairly well. I am truly grateful for that. I am thankful for the scientists who created the vaccine and all of the medical workers and volunteers who have gotten it into so many arms. Woo hoo! I am also thankful for the many farmers near and far who keep the food on our tables. I am thankful for my plant friends who have made my garden even more special than ever. I am thankful, as always, for the sun and the rain to keep our little section of the world green and lovely and now orange, red, and brilliant yellow. I am thankful for our co-op (Weaver Street Market) they give me hope that small businesses can thrive. I am thankful for so many things that are not things. I am thankful for all of the teachers out there…and this year especially the ones at UNC- Charlotte where Dylan is going to school. I am thankful that all of the children are able to be in school in person.
I am thankful for Zoom! (Who knew?) But so glad it has been here so we can be together but apart. And…I am always thankful for YOU!, my students, because I know that I can’t teach without you. So, thanks for supporting me for many years (or even just a few weeks).
If you haven't made a thankful list in a while…it feels good! As I write this, I keep thinking of more things to be thankful for but I am going to end it here.
We are off next week. But we have three more weeks of classes after that. The last class is December 19. Winter Session will start January 3.
PS If you are new, I started making these Holiday bookmark coloring cards. I used to print them and give them out in class but now, I just email them.
Print them up, color them and share! Or just hang them on the refrigerator like your school work when you were a kid. If you have card stock use that. Let me know how yours came out!
