I Needed to Remember


She was as articulate 

and effervescent

as I recall.

via

While she gushed with

teenage accolades 

 her companion

silently reminisced

via
about the

spArkLING moments

they had spent in my 

fourth grade French class.


via


What I heard Annie saying

with her voice

resonated louder

in

Marie's 

moist red eyes.

And then I knew.



via


I knew that

I needed to remember 

what I had

meant to 

them as children

unknown source

and how that experience has 

affected their young 

womanhood.

via

For just one hour later

I would learn

that this year

some HIGH

parental expectations

had not been met.


via

Thus is the life 

of a teacher. 

I Needed To Remember

because the

Sparkling Moments 


via

as well as 

our misjudgements


are part of learning

who we were

who we are 

and who we are 

expected to be.

The Four Winds

via

...a man came 

to me

and told me his dream.


via


He had set out to

the open sea

in a small canoe.




via

The waters thundered

and his heart 


swelled with fear


via

until direction from 

ahead of him said:

 Wait for the silence


via

and then 

start paddling. 


There are times in our lives

when voices from

 The Four Winds

overwhelm us.


via

Through them

bursts forth 

the silent hum 


via

determined and still 

to equip us for 

the journey.

I Will Become

As long as there is 

light

left in the

seat of hope

via
 
there will be no 

fear of the 

dark.



via

And as long as there is 

FAITH

to move forward


via my etsy shop



you can trust that


pinterest

Therefore this month

as I turn one year older


pinterest

I will no longer think about 

the girl 
I used to be
But I will rejoice in

the woman

I will become.
