If I'm being honest with my story, this is part of it. Today I wanted to crawl under the table and stay there. After some tears, a run, and some dinner, things started to look up. I sat and listened to some music for a bit. (I love Chris Tomlin's Christmas Album!) I am watching some "Mary Poppins" as I type this. (I Love This Movie. Almost as much as I love snacks.) An early bedtime is scheduled. Things are getting better.
And then I remembered that earlier today I wanted to share this with you: (Side note-why are my pictures seemingly rotating on their own? I saved them as a jpeg file, and they were the rotated the correct way until I uploaded them here. I fiddled a bit, but then stopped because I can still tell a story with upside down photos.)
|I received the nicest email from a parent asking if her daughter could bring this book in. She was so excited! The kids giggled and really enjoyed this book.|
|Today, this book came in from a student. We read it after a recess. Again, I was excited to see the engagement from all the students. It also lead to a great discussion about fairy tales that we have read.|
|This child has learned he has something to say in writing. He is writing to a staff member in our building. "What kind of books do you have now? We need a good book to read." My heart melts.|
So, there was a moment in the day where it wasn't so bad. :) "Today was a difficult day. Tomorrow will be better." -Kevin Henkes
