February 23 Day 352: Deep Appreciation

During this time of extended stress and struggle, there are some people that keep me going.

First and foremost is my family. My husband usually brings me coffee and breakfast to start my day. He visits regularly for a kiss or to make sure I have what I need. The son at home also checks in, keeps in contact, and even cooks dinner two nights a week. I appreciate their intentions and love.

The students that are always present and prepared in my synchronous class. Their consistent work motivates me to continue doing my best for them. I appreciate their perseverance and participation.

My colleagues at work that continue to care and serve students to the best of their abilities. I appreciate their commitment and humanity.

The professional volunteers at the MAA who lend their energy and time to bring value to the association. I appreciate their dedication and creativity.

Individual actions may go seemingly unnoticed. But that is not the case. The constant accumulation of these efforts overtime have made all the difference in the world for me.
