Are you a teacher or parent scrambling to make the most of every second before the holiday break? Have you had enough of malls and stores? Sounds like you need an Education Spring-style restorative gift.
Two kindred blogs, Musing off the Mat and Jenny’s Lark, inspired me to adapt their idea.
Relax comfortably. Allow your mind to wander over the array of happy experiences you’ve had this year. Write them down and number as you go.
Add richness by including moments of all sizes. While writing my list, I found small moments that were easily overlooked. It was simple to add a visit to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. Inside that large moment, though, was a smaller one in the inner courtyard.
And we realize that by noticing our gifts to self that we’ve been good enough teachers and good enough parents.
