Happiness is walking to work in the sunshine, cool air on my legs, breeze in my hair. Happiness is picking chokecherries that hang like grapes along the road, eating the plump berries for breakfast, spitting the seeds into the aspen woods. Happiness is seeing new student faces in the hallway, getting a few hugs from old students, starting a new school year in a good way. Happiness is new responsibility like the roles of teacher librarian, grade nine English, and Native Studies. Happiness is a new blog for my class www.bertfoxnativestudies10.blogspot.ca Happiness is seeing my youngest daughter in the hallways with her little grade eight buddies. Happiness is playing table tennis in my high heels at noon. Happiness is walking home and driving Arwen into the city for some mother daughter time. Happiness is being a teacher who is thankful for this land, this livelihood, these relationships.
