As I see the dragonflies fly by my office window
I am reminded of other free spirits…
The students I encounter everyday.
My journey which began 8 years ago, continues…
Each day, sometimes brings a smile on my lips and sometimes a frown on my brow
The joys, the challenges, the perseverance, the grit, and so much more
The pieces fit in together each day and I realise that I am…
A large part of who I am, has been defined by the free spirits in my life.
Relationships, which are in the “core” of a person, are visible everyday
A hug, a huge smile, a high five, a large “thanks”, some discontent, and rarely a larger difference of opinion
I feel what they feel, I cry when they cry, I worry when they worry, I smile when they smile
Trying to find my joys within these relationships, I am transported to a world where only “we” exist.
I write this not because I have to, but because I want to
I live a life, which is richer, fulfilled and content
Eight years ago, my family was my husband and my two sons
Today my family includes my students, for whom I care (and worry about) as much as my own two boys.
How then can one not be grateful for an experience such as this!
