Their rhythmic fall
Will soon begin
One onto the next
Onto the next
Out of line
Until the box opens
Due to President’s Day and icy weather, we only had one day of in-person school last week. It was not my best teaching day. Also, not my worst, but…Whew! I went home exhausted and a teeny bit irritable.
The struggles started with step one. Some I was able to fix, others I was not. No need to name them. That would only serve to re-ignite feelings of frustration.
That is teaching. That is life. No matter our plans. Rarely do all the dominoes fall in perfect order. And truthfully, that should not be the goal.
Here’s to a new week, new plans, and renewed purpose. And hopefully, a bit more patience.
