Westview Weekly

Success for all, whatever it takes!

Issue 24: February 1-5, 2016

Good morning, Westview!


That was probably the most beautiful late-January weekend I can remember. We took advantage of the sunshine by spending nearly all weekend outside. We took walks, played baseball, dug in the dirt, jumped from high places, shopped at the Legends, and had an all-around great weekend. I hope that your family was also able to enjoy the great weather with some outdoor activities!


This was our last weekend living at Grammy and Papa's so Colby also made sure to get some extra snuggles in their bed watching Paw Patrol and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse in the mornings. It has been a blessing to watch him interact with my parents, but it's time to act my age and move into my own home again.


While I cannot wait to move into our new home, this time with my parents has reminded me how grateful I am for their kindness, generosity, and love. There are many things to be grateful for on a daily basis, but it's easy to take them for granted or choose to focus on something else. I have challenged myself this year to focus on the wonderful all around me, and I encourage you to do the same. It has changed my perspective on so many things, and I think I am better for it.


Find something to be grateful for this week...even if seems simple or mundane, trust me, it's not! I hope your week overflows with blessings.


Educationally yours,

Brandyn
