We all have stories. Stories of sadness, hard times, loneliness, and fear. Stories of birthday parties, time spent with friends, trips to the zoo, and bicycle riding. These stories weave us together, creating bonds and memories and building dreams for the future.
The picture to the right is me at age three at the park with both sets of grandparents and my parents. Don't you just love the dated clothing? Classic! Like every individual, I, too, have stories. These stories bring back memories and emotions and create dreams. I am dreaming big this year! To quote my favorite president, Theodore Roosevelt, "Believe you can and you're halfway there." Time to dream big!
As I teacher, I love to bring the stories in history alive for my students and help them connect to the many history makers we learn about. They too, are history makers with stories to tell. Stories of hurt and sadness and stories of joy and happiness. Stories create hopes and dreams and connect us as individuals.
