What would life be like, if we had to stumble along and try to figure everything out for ourselves, with no help from anyone? I think I would be a bit frustrated, and I imagine that I wouldn't know half of what I do. Instead of learning from the wisdom of others, I would be forced to come to conclusions based solely upon what I had personally experienced.
I'm thankful for teachers--both those who are certified and purposeful in their teaching, and those who have informally taught me.
The #ThankfulActs challenge for today is to thank someone who has taught you.
I owe thanks to so many people: my parents, grandparents, and children, as well as my school teachers, piano teachers, and a whole host of other people who have shared wisdom with me through the years. As part of my completion of today's challenge, I also want to thank Robin Cassidy, who recently taught John and me how to make pottery tiles.

We enjoyed our tile-making experience, thanks to our wonderful teacher, Robin. If you ever find yourself on Catalina Island --the same Catalina Island where the Chicago Cubs used to hold their spring training, by the way--do yourself a favor and book a tile-making tour with Silver Canyon Pottery.
Which teacher will you thank today?
