Small voice

You know that small voice you hear in your heart and head?  You know that feeling that at the end of the day that remains?  Even after you've tutored a student who is struggling in math, had a student stay after school so he can do his homework because it never seems to come back, when you've had a kid mislead you about a scuffle at recess, when you see the mound of papers and notebooks to read and grade?

The voice that tells you - this is a good job.  This is where you belong.

I heard that voice today.  I needed that voice today.

I can so relate! My first post in this slice of life challenge was kind of about those feelings of needing to remember hearing that voice.

I'm glad you wrote this. I loved how you wrote the very end. Great post!

This is so true. I love the closing line. In spite of the demands, you know you are called.
