Silver Linings!

I was all geared up to go and visit Barbara Gruener in Friendswood, TX this week.  I have followed her school webpage and her blog for quite some time and learned so many things from her.  She is an awesome character educator and school counselor.  Well, misfortune "ran into" Barbara last week when she was hit head on by a drunk driver at 3:00 in the afternoon!  The woman who hit her was on her way to pick up her kids from school!  First of all, Barbara's wrist and ankle were both fractured and also many cuts, bruises and burns.  The amazing thing is her spirit was not injured---she of course blogged about the silver lining in all of this.  WHAT AN EXAMPLE to all of us!  So stop over at The Corner on Character to see what Barbara has shared lately and you will walk away a better person by reading some of her wisdom that she shares.

I will for sure be sharing about my trip when it does take place, hopefully in February.
