This may sound crazy but I believe that everything happens for a reason and this school closing only confirms my thinking. I tend to be a person who "looks on the bright side" of things...even when "things" seem really dark... or scary. To me I see opportunities for growth and change, instead of inconvenience and struggle. All of the challenges we face have lessons to teach us. This is no different... it just comes in a new package. It has already taught me several things, including how to start a blog! I have never done this in my life but I feel pretty confident that if this situation with the C-virus hadn't developed into a full blown state school closing then I probably wouldn' t have updated my website and clicked on the blog application. So I leave you with this last thought... What will this school closing experience teach you?
