This is the time of year when all the students go back to school. New beginnings - new clothes, new teachers, new classmates. Many of us welcome the familiar feeling of routines after a summer of relaxing and having time for vacations and time with family and friends. Change can be hard for some, but change is inevitable in life. Learning how to deal with new situations and new challenges can help us grow both personally and spiritually.
"Back to School" time may mean back to organized sports, back to music lessons, back to a new season of our favourite television shows. Back to learning. It means all our friends are back from vacation.
Back to school in our household is welcomed and we look forward to both the familiar and newness that this time of year brings. Bring it on!
Have a great day.
