Yesterday I spent the day happily working around the house. And while the body is occupied with trimming the lawn and bathing the Saint Bernard, the mind is free to wander.
I was thinking about how lucky I have been to have spent the past 16 years teaching elementary school. It's a blessing and one that I hope I never take for granted. There is absolutely nothing on Earth that matches the sense of "rightness" I feel when I am sitting in a classroom guiding the learning of a group of children.
I hate to think about the day it will come to an end but that day is not today. I am in the middle of this journey and appreciate it so much.
I'm sure all this waxing sentimental influenced my dreams because last night I dreamt I was in my classroom reading with a group of children.
It was lovely.
Life is good!
