Everything I need to know I learned in Kindergarten. This well-known poem by Robert Fulghum reminds us of the fundamental life lessons that we learn at 5 years old, and which apply throughout our lifetime. Simple rules such as “play fair, don’t take things that aren’t yours, and say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody” go a long way to forming children who hopefully take those lessons to heart as adults. Each time I enter our Kindergarten classroom I am met with shouts of joyful greeting, smiles, happiness, and wonder; it is truly a magical place. (Don’t tell anyone, but sometimes I go in there without administrative purpose!) We learn many lessons in our formative years, and if we trust in God, and “hold hands and stick together”, we are well on our way.
Yours in faith,
