Good morning everyone! Today is Friday! This is Zane Oldenstad, coming to you from home. Like most you - I am doing my school work from home and MS and HS students, you are working on your live core classes today.
Next week is Thanksgiving. We have school Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Then we have four days to spend with family. This is a time of gratitude: Gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions. It is so important to show and practice gratitude in our lives. Here are some questions to help you know who you are grateful for...What person has had the biggest influence on you thus far? What person do you trust the most? What person knows you the very best? What peer do you admire most? Why? What adult in your life do you admire most? Why? Answer some of these and start feeling gratitude.
I can’t believe I have to do this...but...here goes...CMHS Dad Joke of the Day:
"Did you hear the rumor about butter?
Well, I'm not going to spread it!"
Now for our Words of Wisdom.
Words of Wisdom...
This is Mr. Purdue with a few words of wisdom.
Friendship is an interesting word. A friend is someone who knows all about you and still likes you. And a ship, of course, is a large vessel. So that means that a friend-ship is a vessel that holds two friends.
A friend-ship can help you reach your destination, your goals in life. A friend-ship can carry you over the roughest waters, the most difficult times. A friend-ship can provide you shelter in an emotional storm.
Homer, a Greek poet, said:
Two friends, two bodies, one soul. I
f you have a close friendship, count your blessings. The friendship can take you far. If you don't, remember the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson:
The only way to have a friend is to be one.
With something to think about, this is Mr. Purdue. Make it a great day . . . or not. The choice is yours.
