A Big Sigh
It is funny how life can seem like a storm, and other times it can seem like the sun that chases the storm away. I have been so busy today that I have felt overwhelmed. The very reason I don't "multitask" is because I feel like for me that is code for "simultaneously doing several things poorly." For that reason I am grateful for a quiet Sunday. While I know my life and opportunities are blessings not to be wished away, I also appreciate a day of solitude.
As the hour for bed approaches, I am catching the news while my dog takes a pre-bedtime nap. With lunch packed for a week, ninety-nine percent of my laundry done, and some great family developments (to be blogged later), I am nested and pleased.
I can do this, I will be what my students need, and will stay fully present in the moments this week holds for me.
