Tonight I sit here feeling so incredibly blessed.
I began the day with hugs and hellos from students in the hallway.
I ended my school day with my old second graders bursting into my room to give me a hug.
I spent the afternoon with my dad and his wife. I forgot how much I love seeing his face. I stood and just watched as they drove away. I hugged him extra tight tonight.
I used a Groupon on a student massage. Amazing! My body is relaxed and so is my mind. I didn't grade. I didn't really plan. I had a night off of school.
As I type tonight, the sun is setting, the breeze is blowing in my newly installed upstairs windows, and I am listening to worship on Pandora.
It's good to be still. I needed this. Thank you, Father, for such a day where I could just breathe.
