Some Days…

Standard

Some days…

Some days…are filled with bright rays of sunshine glimmering through the windows-floating in on the faint smells of spring…

Some days… are filled with the sweet sound of giggles- my nieces playing tickle monster rolling around on the thickly carpeted floors, students trading stories of their weekend adventures, teachers hovering around in the hallway sharing moments of complete spontaneity before rushing off to beat the first bell…

Some days…are filled with “ah- ha” moments- eyes brightening as puzzle pieces finally click into place, the final grasping of a complex problem, a personal realization…

Some days… are filled with rain storms- thick, veiled clouds hovering just above our head

Some days… are filled with frustration- students grappling to make sense of PARCC testing, a frustrated teacher at the end of their rope…struggling to reach a student who resists with every fiber of their being, confusion at a sudden lack of communication…

Some days… are filled with phone calls- home to parents to share news on their student’s day, calls to friends to catch up and share stories of the day, calls to our own moms…sometimes needing a reminder that everything will be okay…

Some days…are filled with friends- to laugh with, to smile with, to borrow a shoulder when eyes can no longer hold back their tears…

Some days… are light and fluffy- filled with bright colors and happy memories that clutter our walls…

Some days… are dense and sticky- filled with muted colors and complicated memories that clutter our minds…

Some days…

Don’t Cry Over Lost Glasses

  1. And you thought you had nothing to slice about! I hope my slices are this awesome when my inspiration is all dried up! I can relate to all of those days. Some days are better than others, but we just keep pushing through because some days we don’t have a choice! Beautifully written Sam!
