Teacher conferences were held at my daughter’s kindergarten today (she’s way behind on her calculus homework!) Afterwards I was putting some of her paperwork away and came upon the “graduation day” wishes from her pre-school teachers this past June.
Wishes played a central role in the work they did over the past year. The header for my site is a picture of jars filled with different types of wishes they found in the forest. The wishes the teachers shared really touched me then and inspired me again today, so I wanted to share them with you all.
We wish that you will always look and listen closely with your heart to the world around you and take care of it. We know that you are full of wisdom and imagination and that listening and relationships are at the heart of all you do. We wish for you so many wishes!
We wish that you will forever notice details and discover the ways things work
We hope you make new friends while cherishing those you already love.
We wish that you will forever see new ways of doing things – imagine and create new ideas and test them to see if they work.
We hope that you will always laugh a lot and know how good it feels to sing and dance.
We hope that passionate concentration for what you love always makes you happy.
We wish for you endless opportunities and connections….and of course for lots of your wishes to come true.
What have you wished for recently? I wish for you each to take a moment today and wish something inspiring for yourselves or the people you love!
