I still love Mondays. New week – new ideas - new energy … hopefully this week will bring warmer temperatures and much sunshine.
Wow! It has been quite a long time since I have written. I’ve missed it much, though have been in a quiet, mostly intake place for the past several months. Following the spirits of ‘little guys’ every day is a quiet [observing] job; although, the noise that fills the building would never lend one to think so. For anyone who has a passion for teaching … we realize, over and over again, who the true teachers are … the students.
Not really sure if I have many thoughts ready to share – trying- I’ll get there – I hope. In the interim, please bear with me …
A thought worth repeating: After working with younger children during the past year and a half, for the first time in many years, I find myself often shaking my head [that is a real understatement]. Little children are sponges – they learn most of what they learn from what they see and hear. I’d like to see people stop and pay more attention to that. They copy us … the way we speak, the way we respect others, the way we take care of ourselves and the planet. We are all teachers – and little ones follow our lead.
The newest member of our fam – DJ – he is my body guard - we rescued him from Miami, with the assistance of a beautiful person whom I taught [and/or learned from], many years ago.
Here is Lewis, sporting his Obama collar …
And, Dodge … being her huge puppy self.
One of my favs:
I hope everyone is having a beautiful start to a wonderful week.
Until tomorrow xo♥
