My husband took the kids camping for the weekend so that I could get our classroom ready. Yes, I know. He’s a good, good man.
However, being a highly distracted, ADD-type, I need to take the occasional break. Enter Meryl Streep’s amazing performance as former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in the film, The Iron Lady.
(Good, good movie—highly recommended.)

One of the many memorable quotes from the movie is this:
Watch your thoughts, for they become words;
Watch your words, for they become actions;
Watch your actions, for they become habits;
Watch your habits, for they become your character;
And watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.
What we think, we become.
It doesn’t matter that I’ve heard this before—someplace, somewhere. What matters is that I needed to hear it…today.
Happy Labor Day weekend, everyone! If you could a spare a prayer for all the people who are out of work, my husband included, I would be truly grateful.
