Long Day

A very long day.  The MRI was exhausting, almost an hour of sitting perfectly still.  By the time I left the clinic every muscle in my body hurt.

Tomorrow, we hope for answers and solutions.

Rain moving in again tonight, but as we walked the dogs this morning it seemed as though our fruit trees were celebrating.  Apples, pears, peaches and blueberries for right now are abundant.  We will see how we do by picking time.

A former student  sent me the most incredible letter today.  And I so needed to read his words.
There are times as a teacher, I have ran on empty and wondered if anyone listened or cared about what I taught.  This student's letter was like a major hug from the universe, a big high-five filled with love.  I am grateful.

Getting ready for bed.  Sweet dreams to everyone.  Be kind tomorrow.


  1. I envy you for the fruit trees. I'm a great lover of fruit.I buy them and it is quite expensive, especially if they're out of season.

    Teaching can be draining, even toxic, and we're not always aware of that as we convince ourselves we love it. I've been there, done that, even though for a relatively short period of time.

  2. I would love seeing pictures of your fruit trees in full bloom. Such beauty to behold.
    I hope that you get some answers soon.
    Hang in there.
    Hugs, Julia

  3. Isn't life just filled with the bitter and the sweet. Always encouraging to hear nice words for someone. Hoping the bitter/ long and exhausting day was well worth it.
