Yesterday, began gently without an alarm clock. It was the first of a twelve day winter break from teaching and school. My teenagers and husband weren’t home, so I treated myself to some extra relaxation with one of the many to-be-read books on my nightstand. The sunshine beamed through the blinds targeting my dogs who basked in the extra brightness, snoring in warm-and-fuzzy harmony
“Is this the day we’re supposed to love each other the whole time?” My daughter Elena asked me this when she was six years old.
Nine years later, the answer remains, “Yes! And then do it again tomorrow.”
May you all love and embrace someone, something, or yourself a little extra today (and tomorrow and the next day and the next…) Happy Valentines’ Day – Infinity!
Winter break ended on January 2nd, 2019, and upon returning to my high school classroom, I tore away December from my school-year desk blotter. Whew! That was a hectic month. I felt cleansed to get the overbooked page into the trash and see the clean face of January.
