idea mark.

Standard

me – “can you tell about what you wrote?”

kinder – “look up at the top.

the brown part is the idea mark.

all the rest are the ideas.”

i thought this to be brilliant 

and perhaps should be our newest form of punctuation.

move over semicolon; the idea mark is here to stay!

“words are but the signs of ideas.”

rough road.

Standard

the kinders begin the process of digging out their cars

and clearing the road after the storm.

 

“it is a rough road that leads to the heights of greatness.”

-lucius annaeus seneca

diagnosis.

Standard

how lucky am i

that there is a veterinary hospital

right in my very own classroom

and a doctor from that hospital

ready to ‘doctor me’ and to offer a diagnosis:

“you do not have a heartbeat and you have a very small cavity.”

i am thankful for this 

and now that i understand

what is causing my foot to hurt

 i know exactly how to make it all better.

“if you get a diagnosis, get on a therapy,

keep a good attitude and keep your sense of humor.”

-teri garr

heal.

Standard

one of the sweetest cards ever –

created by one of my kinders 

who “read” it aloud to me:

“I really, really, really  hope that your foot feels better very, very soon.”

(complete with a picture of me with one foot in the giant boot. )

“if you carry joy in your heart, you can heal any moment.”
