We work hard and make fools of ourselves so that children will be happy, learn and grow.
Every day is not one of inspiration and the pondering of noble thoughts.
Many days leave us frustrated, drained and unappreciated.
It is a sweet indulgence when I give myself permission to lean into my emotions and even schedule nervous breakdowns.
But in the morning, with the rising of the sun comes new hope, new joy and the will to teach again.
