I woke up around 3:30 this morning. I’m an early riser normally. Typically not that early, but I couldn’t get back to sleep. Sometimes, my mind just runs everywhere, as if it is training for a marathon. It was mostly positive. I was excitedly thinking of new material for my visit to St. Ambrose School in Godfrey.
After an hour of meditation, I knew I needed caffeine to make it through the day. I took a quick walk to Starbucks in Cheshire Hotel for a venti Cascara Latte.
Coffee before makeup
I started my first presentation around 9 to the preschool through 3rd grade students. One thing I stressed to them was the importance of, taking a stand, if you see something happening that you know isn’t right, DO SOMETHING! SAY SOMETHING!
The next group was the 3rd through 5th graders. We had a wonderful discussion about creating inner space, finding positive solutions to problems and bullying. It was amazing! That had such insightful ideas and good questions for me.
I enjoyed St. Ambrose very much today! I’m so grateful I had the opportunity to share Wendy on Wheels with such a wonderful group of students and teachers!
