What is abundance?

Recently I was gifted with the book Simple Abundance by Sarah Ban Breathnach. It's not a new book to me, I remember it well from the late 90's. In fact, way back then I bought the workbook to work through, and did get so far through it. Why I bought the workbook, and not the book, I am not sure. Perhaps the book was sold out. At any rate, many years later, I now own both book and workbook, and as part of my morning "Circle Time" I'm moving through them.

The book is designed for a daily bit of reading and inspiration, starting January 1. Since today is February 15, I'm a bit behind, so I'm reading through January now to catch up. I'm glad I didn't start in August.

Circle Time for Me

Circle Time
Having taught and worked in public schools for 30 years, I've spent a lot of time in the classroom. For the past 15 years, most of that time spent in early childhood classroom settings, both as teacher and consultant. Being a "teacher of teachers" I found myself often sharing the advice, "ground your preschooler's day with some sort of opening activity. Do it everyday. Be consistent. Have a routine. A daily Circle Time is a good start."
