Much of my life happens in a few block radius. You see, I live across the street from my school (I am actually sitting and looking at is a I write this blog.), one block west of our middle school, and caddy corner from our high school, where my husband teaches and coaches. My kids have spent their educational years one block from every school they have attended.
Simplicity matters to me. Low stress daily living matters to me. I love the thought that for a majority of my week I don’t need a car. What is it about cars that raises my blood pressure? I love that I step out my front door every morning, lunch box and school bag on my shoulder, I walk one block, and Tom (my friendly crossing guard) is there to guide me across the street to my school.
I feel blessed that this is my life. I have walked to more football games, basketball games, track meets, open houses, etc. than I could count. I have run home when I’ve forgotten something, provided a key when someone has be locked out, checked on a sick child during my prep, and so much more. I am beyond thankful that I live my life on One Blessed Block.
