Giving Thanks

Hello Friends, 
Did you get your fill of Thanksgiving goodness? 
It sounds cliche to say that the best part of my break was the time spent with my family, but as a soon to be empty nester, those words really do speak the truth. 

As teachers, we often feel conflicted when it comes to time management. 
We want to spend time preparing and planning for our students and our days in the classroom, but at the same time, we owe it to our family to be present for them. 

As teachers, are we too busy for our own good? 
I believe that God does not call us to be "busy".  He calls us to be "fruitful". 
What are we spending our time on? Does it show God's love? Does it bear fruit? 
These are questions that can steer me back on the right path when my obligations outnumber the hours in my day. 

This Thanksgiving I am thankful for the time that I have been given to spend with my family. 
I will not feel guilty for putting down the papers that need to be graded or the plans that have yet to be written.  Time is our most precious resource.  I will use it wisely.
