This has been a hard week to get through, personally and professionally.  Yet, even with my temptation to pack up, hop in the car, and drive to …anywhere but here, small moments managed to allow the corners of my mouth curl into a smile. Many authentic moments this week involved a kindergartener or first grader chatting up a storm, with ardent conviction. It’s a scenario that positively catches this middle school educator’s snarky gal off guard.  Then, there were 26 Moments That Restored Our Faith In Humanity This Year. I emailed the link to my teachers thinking it would bring a bit joy during the last, and very long week before winter break.  In addition to the pleasing replies from some, one group of teachers incorporated the link into an advisement lesson with students, paying it forward.  When all was said and done, though, despite the many expected pleasures that kept me going, edible treats turned out to be the the talk of the town hallways.

I can only take credit for composing them.  Trader Joes  peppermint bark bits are really what send these cookies to a wonderfully blissful level! These cookies are a great addition to any holiday table or for a holiday cookie swap.
