It’s true…every day is a gift.
Today, as I was getting ready, I looked in the mirror and thought, “I get to go to school today. I get to go to school today.”
Today, as I was driving to school, I watched the sun kissed tree tops glow and thought, “I get to drive to school today.”
Today, as I was walking into school, I listened to the sound of my shoes on the tiles and thought, “I get to walk this hall today.”
Today, as I listened and laughed with friends and colleagues I thought, “I get to feel their energy and be with them.”
Today, as I sat across from Paula and Charlie, watching them work and listening to them read, I thought, “I get to be here in their company.”
As the cases rise so do the quarantines. Our school felt a little empty today, but I cannot dwell on the emptiness, there is more to be gained by celebrating the fullness in what I got to do.
I wonder what I will get to do, tomorrow?
