“Blogspiration”

Hello Readers/Thinkers/Bloggers!

Anyone feeling inspired?  I sure am!  This morning you read some pretty inspiring nonfiction articles during Thinking Skills.  As I tell and retell the stories in my head,  I can’t help but feel inspired by Alex Scott’s  grit as she raised $1M dollars to fight cancer, including her own.  I feel motivated by Christopher Reeve’s optimism (he sure is one super man!), and Jim Thorpe’s zest for sports, even when faced with disappointment. 

As you blog, share the character strengths that inspired you in the nonfiction articles we read.  Here is the criteria for success expected in your post:

1. Include your first name

2. Include the title of an article you are writing about.

3. Include at least one character strength you found in an article and a specific example of how a character showed it.

4. Write in complete sentences including capital letters and periods.

Waiting to be inspired,

Mrs. B
