March 7 – Greetings and Sol-utations

March 7 – Greetings and Sol-utations

Today’s lesson is about the power of greeting someone. The morning bell rings and chaos ensues at a K-8 school. Students talking to their friends. Parents frantically hugging, kissing, and dropping off their kids while trying to rush off to work. Teachers getting ready for the day ahead. Noise and craziness but excitement reigns.

I won’t go into in depth here but this plays to that theme. Before my Grandmother’s funeral, we were looking at the flowers people sent. Keep in mind this is a Jewish cemetery. The lady was telling us what could and couldn’t go to the gravesite. Glass, of course, couldn’t go. Then…
