Five Minute Friday: Grace


GRACE is elegance, beauty, favor, goodwill, and mercy.  I ask for God’s grace everyday.

The principalship is a difficult and rewarding profession, one I love.  When I read todays word it took me back to a school I worked at and my lovely friend Bertha.  On many occasions I recall going to Bertha’s desk and squeezing out a nice portion of her hand lotion called, yes you guessed it, GRACE.  I would tell her, “Today is a crazy day and I need a little more grace to get through the day.” She would always respond by saying to take as much as I needed and she would remind me that it was I who had given her the lotion as a gift.  We would both laugh and say, “Thank God we love what we do!”  Her goodwill helped me through some tough days.
