A Message from Mr. Sinclair
There are two types of gratitude:
The sudden kind we feel for what we take;
The larger kind we feel for what we GIVE
– Edwin Arlington Robinson
This time of year tradition and the season tend to turn our thoughts to gratitude. I tend to focus on the blessings in my life that are readily identifiable, and I have missed some of the blessings may be less tangible. Tuesday I was home alone for the first time in a long time. The kids and my wife each had practices or meetings that were keeping them busy and out. I was looking forward to some “me” time, and I was grateful for it. About 20 minutes into my time, my son came home early with a friend. His practice had ended early, and he invited his friend to come play games at our house, promising him that his dad, me, would play as well. Begrudgingly at first, I left my project and I joined in the games. We played for 3-hours and there was fun to be had once I looked for it. When I went to bed, I realized that I was more grateful for the time playing games with my son than I would have been for “me” time, although in the moment it was not an easy choice; it should have been.
I am grateful for inconveniences that bring me closer to my family. I am thankful that my son chooses to come home to play with me, for many kids would choose something else. I am grateful for hardships and challenges that, in hindsight, make me a better more effective person. I am grateful for a wife that coaches me and directs me when I make mistakes, because she makes me better. I am grateful for students that challenge preconceptions, because I learn from them.
I would be remiss if I did not share my gratitude to you my parents for choosing us. Thank you for your support, time, efforts, and generosity that help to make ALA a great place for leaders to grow. Your efforts to raise good kids and prepare them for life have been successful. Thank you to my staff, for the endless hours preparing, lesson planning, practicing, and working to ensure that your students are successful. Thank you PSO, for being proactive, planning, preparing, and implementing effectively. Because of them, we were able to have our Spirit Nights, Book-fairs, Veteran’s Day, canned food drive, feed teachers during parent teacher conferences, and many more things that are too numerous to mention. Thank you students for choosing to be good and honorable. You are ALA, and you hold a special place in my heart.
Remember that gratitude and service are the key to a happy life. During this season, will you work with your families to find that which you are grateful for, and plan to serve others?
