Amidst the Whirl - SOLS
There's stress for sure and moments when I am not as calm as I would like to be, but amidst the whirl there are opportunities to slow down and savor...
reading with the girls
feeling the baby move and watching to see from the outside
rubbing Diana's back as she falls to sleep
sitting with M at the end of the day, drinking peppermint tea
being swept up in a good book
collecting thoughts in my writer's notebook
experiencing a read aloud book with my class
And that is what I try to focus on. I try to gear up for the whirl of activity, while also carefully planning in time to stop, breathe, and savor life with those around me.
