Long Day

Which story do I tell tonight?

A sunny morning: delighted students discovering other class blogs, clicking on posts that resonate with them, pulling their friends’ attention to read the great post they found, writing thoughtful, supportive comments. At recess I mentally compose a “Honey, I Love” style poem in honor of these fun, creative kids.

A stormy evening: unfocused students interrupting, walking away in the middle of directions, tuning out lessons, turning their backs on reading partners.  After school I carry home more tension and irritation than a fitness yoga class can diffuse.  Poor husband, instead of leaving me alone to read in peace, tries to be attentive and finds a volcano errupting.

  1. Your post really captures the day in the life. I love your line ‘I carry home more tension and irritation than a fitness yoga class can diffuse’ SO TRUE! Hope you are able to rest!

  2. Oh, so true! I love this slice. I feel like so many days are filled with both these “sunny mornings” and “stormy evenings.”

    I love the contrast…in particular, the final line!
