A full moon this week and lots of goodbyes.......a week of changes. For several of my students at work, this week is their last week of classes with me.......this is often the most difficult part of my job, all the goodbyes. For the students, they are spreading their wings, hopefully starting the life they were born to live, finding peace down a rocky path. For me, they come and they go.......honestly, I work very hard to be the loving teacher who encourages their new beginning. I learned a long time ago, to be loving and supportive, and then be happy that the student's life begins anew.
Sometimes, I wake up in the middle of the night, and I see their faces, see their tears, hear their laughter........I say a prayer for them, that all is well, that they are safe and healthy, and hope I go back to sleep. I often wonder, are they ok? And life goes on. Out of all the thousands that I have taught, .........all I can do is hope and pray, and send them love and blessings and I hope that life treats them kind.
I am tired, I have pushed and tomorrow is time for me to rest. No classes, a day of rest and care for me. It all begins all over again, Thursday........hello, goodbye.
