If you lost a bet and had to dye your hair a color of the rainbow for a week, what color would it be? Ooh, I’d love swaths of all the colors; that would be a perfect bet to lose! But what does it say about us that the hair on the right is called a “rainbow afro wig” and related items are for clown costumes? Just saying.
If you could choose one word to focus on for 2017, what would it be? Balance. The correct balance between the important and the urgent. Between my interests and those of others. Between sleep and playing on the computer. Between chocolate and kale.
What was one thing you learned last year that added to your life? I learned more deeply that the opinions of others should not drive me, that I am loved just as I am, and that my identity is found in the how the Lord sees me.
If life was ‘just a bowl of cherries’… which fruit other than a cherry would you be..? Oh pomegranate, pomegranate! It’s my favorite fruit and the reason my next dental appointment will take longer. Pomegranate juice has turned my teeth and nails pinkish. No photos.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? I am grateful for the beauty of snow, even with a layer of ice under it. I look forward to working with my kiddos and maintaining their upward trajectory. Love to teach and learn!
