Ohhh Monday...usually we have a love / hate relationship but today, it was just love.
Today was super fast. My son had an appointment so I was late getting to school. I felt like all I had time to do was give a few hugs and send my kids home. I am looking forward to tomorrow. No one had questions about last week, which I was relieved. I am not sure what I would have said but I am sure God would have given me the words. This weekend was a roller coaster for me. We celebrated my daughter's sweet 16 on Friday night. My sister had to slap me around a little to get me out of my crying funk so I could give Grace the party of her dreams. Then on Saturday and Sunday, my sweet hubs planned a weekend away for our anniversary. I tried so hard to be present in every moment this weekend but my mind continued to drift and I found myself fighting back tears. I still feel like I need to have a good cry but haven't really allowed myself that. Its amazing to me how one minute can provide so much prospective. I hope you had a great day. Love those babies! Yes, standards and teaching to our fullest are important but so is loving our students. Here is a sweet poem someone sent me today. Praying for the peace that passes all understanding for us all. Love and virtual hugs!
