Today is a special day! The Denver Teacher’s strike is over and the kids are back at school. When I was on my walk this morning, I was able to see my friends again on their way to school. I missed seeing them the past few days. Something extra special also happened – I got to walk with Damien and his Dad for a few blocks.

Damien reminded me it’s Valentine’s Day. He had a bag covered with red hearts filled with cards and candy to give to his classmates. It was so fun to feel the excitement and love in the air this morning.
