I have always felt a connection with the red fox. It was the first animal I saw after my Dad passed, and many live near me now. Sometimes on the way to work, one will pop out of the brush, and it looks at me. I feel it's message... I have always thought about sketching one, so with Kristin's color challenge this week, it seemed like the perfect time.
Lately I have had a more than difficult time journaling and creating. I have had a heavy mind and a heavier heart. I try so hard to be quiet and still to hear the gentleness of light and gratitude, but then my overly sensitive self seems only to get knocked down again and again.
Anxiety and stress have given me cause to become stronger. I am standing...persevere. Persevere.
Every year I invite the head of the ONLY gum ball making factory in the U.S. to come into my second grade classroom. Today was the Tutti Frutti sweet day! He demonstrated how to make gum, and entertained, and let us all chew and blow bubbles! I invited 80 people, big and small, to join us!! Next month, we will walk there for our favorite field trip, and get a very private tour!
